On Monday, Manchester United completed the signing of towering midfielder Marouane Fellaini from Everton. Here, we cast an eye over the Belgian's career to date...
Where does he play? In recent seasons, Marouane has successfully adopted the number 10 position, but in truth, that was partly due to Everton’s limited options up front. Perhaps more commonly, he is more often deployed as a deep-lying midfielder; offering a solid screen in front of the back four.
We have history, don’t we? Fellaini has been a thorn in United’s side of late, most recently heading Everton to victory on the opening night of last season, 2012/13. That match was preceded by the infamous 4-4 draw at Old Trafford in the latter stages of the previous campaign, during which he scored a fine second-half volley. So let’s be thankful he’s swapped Blue for Red, eh!
