Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has tagged Marouane Fellaini “fantastic” after the midfielder rushed back from injury to play against Chelsea on Sunday.
Fellaini missed six games after suffering strained knee ligaments playing for Belgium last month.
Mourinho told reporters afterwards: “I have to say that Fellaini was fantastic for me, for his fellow players, for the fans, for the team, for the club because he was injured [for] weeks.
“He trained on Saturday for the first time with the team, and he put himself on the line ready to come in and help if the team needed him.
“So [I’m] really, really pleased. I don’t want to let it go blank, that word with him.”
He added: “It’s disappointing for us because we came here to win, we pressed them and we created a couple of good chances in the first half.
“They did as well because they are a good team, but we had very good chances in the first half to score, and also in the second half with a couple of good shots from Fellaini and [Marcus] Rashford.
“They started better than us in the second half but that can happen in football. In the first 10, 15 minutes they played better in the second half but we played better in the first half.”
