Louis van Gaal was complimentary of Marouane Fellaini after Manchester United’s win over Tottenham on Sunday.
The Belgian midfielder scored his fourth goal of the season in the 3-0 victory at Old Trafford in one of his best displays of the campaign.
Van Gaal stopped short of suggesting it was Fellaini’s finest outing this term but was thrilled with the positive effect the former Everton ace has had of late.
“He had already played a lot of games that he had a big influence,” said van Gaal.
“He scored a lot of goals but he also has assists, and now we play also in that shape in the midfield, and that was good. I’m very happy for him.”
