Man Utd midfielder Marouane Fellaini took a tumble against Southampton on Saturday after Shane Long had a kick at him. His reaction though, was brilliant.
In truth, it wasn’t a nice tackle from the Southampton forward as his studs went down the back of the Belgian’s heel and he was instantly apologetic which showed that he knew straight away it was a poor challenge.
However, the reaction was priceless as Fellaini wriggled around on the ground like he was in incredible pain, only to get to his feet shortly after and carry on playing.

It surely would have given Jose Mourinho a moment of panic as he’s already without Paul Pogba in midfield for the foreseeable future after the French international sustained a hamstring injury.
The last thing he needs is for another midfielder to be ruled out for a lengthy period of time to leave him short of numbers, but thankfully for him and for us all, Fellaini is ok everyone…
Hoping big Fellaini is ok. Can't afford to lose him with Pogba out & him in good form! ?
