Marouane Fellaini can hurt United, says Everton boss David Moyes

Marouane Fellaini can hurt United, says Everton boss David Moyes

The giant Belgian is the Toffees' leading goalscorer with 11 in all competitions and was the match-winner in the season-opening 1-0 victory over the Red Devils back in August.

Despite a recent hip injury, Moyes is hopeful Fellaini can terrorise the United defence once more.

The Scot said: "He has got really bad bruising, but I think he will be okay.

"He is coming back into a little bit of form. He scored a couple of goals for us last week and he is the sort of player who seems to enjoy the bigger games."

Reports that Fellaini could be set for a big-money move to Chelsea appear unfounded, with the 25-year-old telling Sport Wereld: "I heard about that interest, but I've never really talked with Chelsea.

"In all seasons, there is talk on the grapevine about other clubs, but I was never personally around the table with another club.

"If Chelsea want me, they can cross that bridge, but for now I'm happy at Everton. If we finish in fourth place we will qualify for the Champions League and we are currently fifth.

"After this season I still have three years left on my contract and the club has become a bit like my family. I have a tremendously good relationship with the manager and my team-mates.

"People talk all the time about Chelsea like I've already signed. I am still an Everton player. "

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
