Manchester United v Zorya
Manchester United are half-way through their Europa League tie against Zorya.
The score is currently still 0-0 and neither side look great at the moment.
This game was described as a ‘must win’ game by Jose Mourinho in his pre-match press conference.
However, Manchester United have looked slow and ponderous on the ball at times so far tonight, and one player who has been slated by most fans is Marouane Fellaini.
Fellaini’s performance slammed
Many fans are calling for Fellaini to be substituted as soon as possible and are claiming that he slows Manchester United’s play down massively.
He had started the season well under Mourinho and was credited by many Manchester United fans in their opening fixtures.
However, his recent performances have been poor and now many Manchester United fans are on his back again.
They are calling for either Carrick or Herrera to replace the Belgium international in order to get the ball moving in midfield a lot quicker.
See what the fans had to say below:
Crime against football if Fellaini starts 2nd half. Can’t tackle, pass, cross & is pedestrian to say the least. Now started missing headers.

Didn’t see that 45 minutes coming. Expected a goal. Or two. Need to wake up in the second half. Fellaini for Herrera, maybe? #MatchdayMac

Fellaini hasn’t done anything wrong but our build up play and creativity suffers sooooo much when he plays

Carrick for Fellaini would change this game entirely#MUFC

Fellaini playing at the base of this team is the primary cause of this dire performance

Fellaini isn’t doing himself any favours in the scapegoat sense. Far too slow on the ball, no comparison with Herrera.

Defended Fellaini enough times but he really needs to be moved on. Everything is so painfully slow and cumbersome with him in the middle.

massive problem. He doesn’t offer anything on the ball and his positional awareness isn’t great (see tonight’s counter attacks against us).

No Fellaini in the team = goals.

Fellaini has his uses but is a waste in games where we dominate possession. Much more suited to a passer like Carrick or Herrera #mufc
