Fellaini has lofty ambitions for his side.
Despite having found life post-Sir Alex Ferguson difficult, Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is targeting the Premier League title for his team this season.
After a shaky start manager Louis van Gaal in 2014/15 the Red Devils have now won six successive league matches and Fellaini believes the side are showing title winning credentials.
“In some ways it is too early to talk about the title because we are still building and it is only December, but we are winning matches consistently again and when that happens your belief grows,” the Belgium international told the Times.
“At the very least we have to be in the top four; we must do that. I wanted this challenge.”
Fellaini is enjoying something of a revival of his Old Trafford career this term after being widely criticised last year for his form following a £27.5m deadline day transfer from Everton.
The 27-year-old was former boss David Moyes’ only significant purchase ahead of his first campaign in charge and many viewed the deal as a panic buy from the Scot.
However, now under the guidance of van Gaal and Fellaini has found a place in the side and many of those doubters have now disappeared and praise is starting to creep back in for the Belgian.
