Marouane Fellaini got the Manchester United fans on their feet on Sunday, after heading a dramatic late winner in the 2-1 Premier League victory against Arsenal.
Paul Pogba had opened the scoring in the first half and former Reds attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan equalised for the Gunners after the half-time break.
A draw was looking likely at the Theatre of Dreams, and especially after Marcus Rashford saw his late effort correctly disallowed for offside.
But then, just as time was running out, our second-half substitute Fellaini rose high inside the penalty area to nod Ashley Young’s in-swinging cross into the back of the net, sending the attending United supporters into raptures around the stadium.
It was a great moment for the Belgium international, which was brilliantly captured by a handful of fans who filmed the celebrations and posted their footage to Twitter. Check out our favourites…

Goal showed exactly why Mourinho wants to keep Fellaini. Not always a fan favourite but a good Plan B. Caused chaos in Arsenal's box after he came on.— Rob Dawson (@RobDawsonESPN) April 29, 2018

IS FELLAINI SET TO SIGN?
After the match, Jose Mourinho explained his belief that Felli is willing to commit his future to the club after months of speculation.
“I believe he will stay,
“ said the boss. ”He’s a good player and he can be used in many different circumstances, according to the nature of the game.
“That’s why we want him to stay and that’s why I believe that he is going to stay. The position is we are almost there. But, in football, almost is not enough. I think we are almost there but I can't celebrate because almost is not enough.I want to see the white paper with the United crest and I Mr Ed Woodward's signature and Maraoune's signature on it.
