Manchester United fans are not happy with Marouane Fellaini starting in the FA Cup final

Published 1 Comments

Louis van Gaal was always going to start Marouane Fellaini in the FA Cup final, wasn't he? 

The big Belgian hasn't featured for Manchester United since their 1-1 draw against Leicester City, after which he was banned retrospectively for pulling Robert Huth's hair in the box. 

Now, as United prepare to face Crystal Palace in the cup final - the most important game of their season - Fellaini is back.

Cue some pretty upset Manchester United fans on social media. 

Fans angry

United are under huge pressure to beat Palace, as it may be the only thing that will placate their fans after a hugely disappointing campaign that saw them miss out on the Champions League.

It will be their first FA Cup trophy in 12 years it they pull it off. However, it looks like these United fans are feeling slightly less confident now. 

Big call

Fellaini could help United with Palace's aerial threat, but after another turbulent season, it's no surprise he's been given a mixed reaction. 

Louis van Gaal will no doubt receive plenty of criticism if his decision backfires, but of course, there is always a chance he won't be around to see it, with widespread suggestions that this could be his final game. 

Palace boss Alan Pardew has also made some big calls, leaving Jason Puncheon and Emmanuel Adebayor on the bench.
