Bruce: Rooney and Fellaini should be feared.

Hull City defender Alex Bruce has said that Wayne Rooney and Fellaini are real threats ahead of Saturday’s clash between Manchester United and Hull City.

The defender, son of Hull City boss Steve Bruce spoke to United Review as reported by about the pair: "Wayne is always a threat isn't he? He’s a great player. I watched the Manchester derby and he nearly scored a great goal with a turn when he ran through, only to be knocked off the ball at the end.

"It shows the quality he has and he’s always capable of scoring a great goal at any given moment, like he did at the KC Stadium last season when he produced a little bit of magic with a 25-yard volley from nowhere that got them back into the game. It’s one thing we have to keep on top of.

"Louis van Gaal has brought in some quality players like Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao.

"There are threats all over the pitch and I think Marouane Fellaini has done well in the past few weeks. He scored a great goal at West Brom and it was a huge boost in confidence for him.

"He’s been playing well and I think he has been one of United’s best players in recent weeks. He’s a threat as well as a big physical presence."

Bruce also spoke about Van Gaal and said Louis will impose his influence on the team and be successful.

"It’s still early days but he’s brought in a lot of players," added Bruce.

"He’ll probably tell you he might want to bring in one or two more. It’s a transitional period and he wants to have his own stamp on things so you have got to always give the manager time.

"He’s got a good pedigree and has done well at every club he has been at before. I don’t see any reason why he won’t do well at United."
