Real outclass United
Real Madrid showed their class and superiority over Man United on Wednesday night in Macedonia, as Los Blancos lifted the UEFA Super Cup after winning the mach 2-1.
Isco (scorer of Real’s second), Luka Modric and Toni Kroos bossed the game from start to finish, while Casemiro also bagged a rare goal in the showpiece.
Romelu Lukaku found the net for United to give the scoreline a modicum of respectability, but Real could have scored plenty more – they hit the woodwork twice in the match.
Fellaini’s mashed up face
One of the standout memories from the UEFA Super Cup was a magnificent photo of Marouane Fellaini.
The Belgian isn’t everyone’s cup of tea at Man United, as he’s often perceived as a big lump who offers little in the way of finesse and creativity.
In a picture taken by Boris Grdanoski of the Associated Press, Fellaini is reaching for the ball and his face is making all sorts of movements.
Marouane Fellaini or Phil Jones?
As many commented on social media, it was a picture you would expect of Fellaini’s Manchester United team mate Phil Jones.
In awesome fashion, Fellaini reacted to the picture with a zinger of a Tweet himself.
The Manchester United midfielder posted it on his own account and Tweeted: “Thank you to everyone who posted & sent me this”. With no less than six hysterically laughing emojis.

It hasn’t taken too long for meme makers to make fun of Fellaini’s mashed up face.
