The Belgian made his first appearance for Man United since last season due to domestic suspension and was straight back into the action, scoring the crucial third goal in injury time.
The 27-year-old, wearing the No.27 shirt for United for the first time, ensured his side have a much more comfortable lead to take to Belgium next week.
Fellaini scored a trademark header after a delightful cross into the box from Memphis Depay and he was delighted to open his account for the season:
great team performance tonight – happy to be back on the score sheet 😊 pic.twitter.com/AMkyV6kDFH

The midfielder was one of United’s most important players last season and Fellaini will be glad to get back onto the pitch after being unavailable for opening two Premier League games.
As he is still suspended for United’s game against Newcastle United on Saturday, the former Everton man can already turn his attention to next week’s second leg where he will want to make his first start of the season.
