Everton 1-0 Manchester United – Premier League – 20 August 2012

“Hey, ‘little boy inside me’, you’re getting a right kicking when we get home”

While man of the moment Robin Van Persie was watching from the United subs bench, the afro-tastic Marouane Fellaini was giving a virtuoso performance in the heart of the Everton midfield at Goodison on Monday night. The Belgian midfield dynamo even topped off his superb performance with the match-winning goal, heading home on 57 minutes to secure a shock victory for David Moyes’ Toffees.

Phil Jagielka did clear a Tom Cleverley shot off the line but it’s probably fair to say that the home side deserved the victory. Even the late introduction of £24million man Van Persie couldn’t save the night for United, who couldn’t find a way past Jagielka and Sylvain Distin.

Now, Fergie, you’re looking for a new Paul Scholes? And you may need a defensive midfielder? Well, get your cheque-book out and sign Fellaini. The boy can do it all. And he has ace hair

    Fellaini was absolutely immense. The way he effortlessly took the ball down outta the air was a joy to watch. Sold performances all round from Everton; Jagielka, Hibbert, Baines, Coleman and Pienaar all impressed. Decent looknig debut for Kagawa too.

    Surely someone’s gonna bid for Fellaini soon?
