The brilliant social media reaction to Marouane Fellaini’s brace for Man United vs Crystal Palace

Social media users have this afternoon reacted in hilarious fashion to Marouane Fellaini scoring two goals for Manchester United versus Crystal Palace.

Matchup

The two sides went head-to-head in a Premier League clash at Old Trafford this afternoon, with many predicting a hammering for the visitors pre-match.

United came into proceedings having won 7 of their 8 fixtures across all competitions so far this season, while Palace were yet to earn a point or even score a goal in the Premier League.

And it didn’t take long for the clash to follow the exact pattern that had been predicted ahead of kick-off, as the Red Devils took the lead with just 3 minutes on the clock.

Following some stellar work down the left by the impressive Marcus Rashford, his drilled cross was perfectly swept home by the incoming Juan Mata from the edge of Palace’s box.

Star of the show

While it was Rashford who took many of the early plaudits, it was unexpected hero Marouane Fellaini who was soon the talk of social media, after he netted a brace either side of the half-time whistle.

His first came after the big Belgian arrived unmarked at the back post to slot home a volley following a perfect delivery from Ashley Young, with his second a typical Fellaini header, as the controversial former Everton star rose highest to nod home Marcus Rashford’s pacy free-kick.
