With Fellaini, Man Utd have found some balance says Arsenal legend.


Marouane Fellaini has helped Manchester United find some tempo according to Martin Keown.

The Belgian midfielder came off the bench in the second-half of United's clash against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns and was in the starting lineup for the 1-1 draw v Chelsea last Sunday.

Fellaini was criticised for his performances at United under David Moyes' reign last season after the the 26-year-old moved from Goodison Park to Old Trafford.

But, following his recent displays against West Brom and Chelsea, former Arsenal defender Martin Keown thinks Louis van Gaal's side have 'finally found some rhythm.'

“Watching Marouane Fellaini at the World Cup, he did well operating in a midfield three,” Keown wrote in his Daily Mail column.

“In his last two United games he has played in a similar role – on the side of a diamond that can become a three. He looked much better for it.

“It’s a role that allows him to break forward from deep but also help out and cover when needed. United have finally found some rhythm and the system seems to be improving, but the problem now for Van Gaal is picking out his best XI.”
