Fellaini happy to knock out former club Everton and help book FA Cup final spot with Man United.

  • Marouane Fellaini has scored two goals in five FA Cup appearances this season.

  • The big Belgian was happy to score against his former club.

Marouane Fellaini expressed his delight at Manchester United's FA Cup win over Everton on Saturday night.

Fellaini's first-half strike handed the Red Devils a deserved lead before Chris Smalling's own-goal made it 1-1 in the 76th minute.

But, United's summer signing Anthony Martial broke the Toffees' heart as he scored in the dying minute to seal the Reds Devils' spot in the FA Cup final.

After the clash, Fellaini told BBC Sport: "It was a tough game. Everton asked a lot of questions. But we are in a final which is most important. I’m so happy for me and the club."

Midfielder Michael Carrick was delighted with how United secured the win.

"It was a crazy second half. We played some good stuff in the first half and we were comfortable and in control of the game," the England international said.

"There were chances everywhere and to finish like that is the best way to win a game.

"It would mean everything to win it. We have been desperate to get our hands on this trophy for too long. We are not there yet but we have given ourselves a chance."
