Marouane Fellaini: We deserve a top-four finish.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini said Louis van Gaal's side have done enough to secure a Champions League spot this season, after his second-half goal handed the Reds three crucial points at Selhurst Park.

On Saturday afternoon, Juan Mata broke the deadlock from the penalty spot in the 19th minute but the Eagles responded in the 57th minute through Jason Puncheon, as the Palace winger's free-kick deflected off Daley Blind's head before hitting the back of the net.

However, Fellaini headed home the winner with twelve minutes to go - when Ashley Young's cross found the big Belgian's head.

“It was a massive win," he told MUTV.

"All the players, the manager and the staff are very happy. I think we do [deserve a place in the top four], but we will see if we get it after the Chelsea-Liverpool game.”

United fought really hard for the vital win and the midfield marshal heaped praise on the team's performance.

“The group is experienced and the spirit is unbelievable, so we have to keep going,” the midfielder added. “We showed today that the spirit is there today, so it is good for the future.”
