Manchester United Football Club are in a sorry state at the moment. Derby County went to Old Trafford and outplayed Jose Mourinho’s men. Eventually, The Rams ran out as winners via a penalty shootout.

Things started well with an excellent Juan Mata goal, but quickly, the tide turned. The Reds looked nervous, shaky, and downright awful. United went down to ten men. Player’s heads continued to drop – except for a certain Marouane Fellaini.

If one player comes away from the Carabao Cup defeat with any credit, it’s the big Belgian. He was strong in the tackle, good with the ball at his feet, scored the header to draw us level and tucked away his penalty nicely.

Fellaini is probably the only player who is putting in the proper work for his manager right now – and it showed. Mourinho put big faith in the ex-Everton man by giving him a new contract when the Old Trafford faithful wanted him gone. He deserves credit for that.

As you’d imagine, United fans were pretty happy with Fellaini’s all-around contribution, but the result was a mightily concerning one. Who knows, the 6’5 midfielder may well have a new manager in the not too distant future.
