Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini has declared that the Old Trafford side could win the Premier League.
The Red Devils have been on an excellent run recently, winning six games in a row in the Premier League.
Part of that form has come from Fellaini, who has been resurgent under new boss Louis van Gaal.
The £27.5 million signing from Everton has become part of Van Gaal’s plans after recovering from injury.
This represents a significant turnaround for the Belgian international, who looked set to leave Man Utd this summer.
He was bought by former boss David Moyes on transfer deadline day last season but struggled to impress under the Everton manager.
Many Man Utd fans called for his departure, but he has become part of Van Gaal’s first team and put in excellent displays as his side have picked up form.
Now, having proven his critics wrong, Fellaini believes Man Utd can go on to challenge for the title.
“Last season was not good enough for Manchester United,” Fellaini told The Times. “We know that and we are working hard to put that right. 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.
“At the very least we have to be in the top four; we must do that. I wanted this challenge.”
