Fellaini lined up alongside Michael Carrick in the middle of the park for Man United and the pair worked well together.
Jesse Lingard opened the scoring with a superb effort before Chelsea earned a point thanks to Diego Costa’s late strike. United supporters had their say on Fellaini during and after the game:
Must admit Fellaini has been quite affective as a defensive midfielder #MUFC

Replace Fellaini and Lindgard for Memphis and Scheiderlin as soon as possible and i'm sure we'll win this one

Fellaini is a hell of a defender…

Feel like we're playing with 10 with Fellaini out there

Fellaini watches the ball come down and leaves it what the hell is the point

Fellaini has been neat so far. Offering solid protection for our back four so far.

Fellaini has been brilliant.

Fellaini also impressed in the win over Stoke City recently but, if United are to move on to the next level, there is a question mark over whether or not the Belgian should be included in the side.
It remains to be seen if Fellaini keeps his place in the starting XI for the game against Sunderland next week, particularly if Bastian Schweinsteiger recovers from injury.
