Fellaini headed home Ander Herrera's deep cross in the 21st minute of Manchester United's 2-1 win over Stoke City on Tuesday.

Fellaini's goal was his first at Old Trafford since his move there in the summer of 2013, and he is currently playing some of his best football for the Red Devils. He has started each of the last six matches, and is fully expected to be back in the starting XI on Monday at Southampton.

The FA will not take action against Fellaini after he was accused of spitting on Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero on Sunday, reports the Daily Mail.

Fellaini and Aguero came together in the first half of the match, and the Belgian midfielder appeared to bend down to confront the forward. The FA reviewed video evidence and decided the spit that appeared to come from Fellaini was not intentional.

Fellaini came on for Ander Herrera at halftime and scored his first Premier League goal for Manchester United in their 2-2 draw with West Brom on Monday.

Fellaini has been a huge dud since joining United in the summer of 2013, and he seemed to be on his way out during this summer's transfer window until an ankle injury scuppered any move. It's still possible that he could move in January, but if he can keep up his good play, he may be able to play his way into a role on Louis van Gaal's side.

Fellaini returned from an ankle injury by subbing on for Antonio Valencia in the 79th minute of Manchester United's 2-1 victory over Everton on Sunday.

Fellaini was told this summer that he is excess at Old Trafford and he seemed to be on his way to Napoli until the ankle injury kept him from being moved. It wouldn't be surprising at all if he was shipped out in January, though he may get some playing time with United before then if they can't overcome their injury crisis.

Fellaini (ankle) has been training with the first team for the last week and he could feature Sunday against Everton, manager Louis van Gaal confirmed Friday.

Fellaini was all but gone from Manchester United in the summer transfer window, but he picked up an ankle injury which effectively ended any move. Van Gaal noted that he isn't fit enough to play all 90 minutes, so his fantasy production will be limited either way.

Fellaini (ankle) returned to full training after damaging ligaments in Manchester United's opening match against Swansea, reports the Daily Mail.

The midfielder has been out of action for the last five weeks, but his return to full training could mean a playing return in the near future. He will likely not be prepared to face Everton this weekend.

Fellaini (ankle) is not expected back for at least a month, manager Louis van Gaal said Friday.

Fellaini appeared to be on his way out of Manchester during the summer transfer window, but the ankle injury ultimately killed any potential deal. He has no real future at United under van Gaal, so the club's hope is that he can return to fitness in time for a move in January.
