Marouane Fellaini roasted on Twitter as he marks 100th Manchester United appearance with gaffe

Manchester United took on Everton at Goodison Park, in a clash both teams were desperate to win. With United grabbing the lead courtesy Zlatan Ibrahimovic's lobbed goal, fans hoped they would see the game out, but they were also wary of a strong response. In true Jose Mourinho fashion, the United manager threw on a lumbering Marouane Fellaini to add some physicality to United's midfield and prevent a set-piece goal.

However, Fellaini had other plans. Determined to leave his mark on the occasion of his 100th appearance for Manchester United, the Belgian delivered his finest impersonation of a tree - staying immobile his box, fouling Idrissa Gueye in the process and gifting Everton a penalty. Needless to say, some choice words were reserved for Fellaini on Twitter:

Ex-England player Gary Lineker called it Fellaini's "best performance".

 

Former Everton teammate Leon Osman also commented on Fellaini's notoriety:
