Marouane Fellaini has reflected on the shock of how big Manchester United is, and how he had to learn that quickly when signing for the club the summer before last.

All eyes are on Maraouane Fellaini ahead of Manchester United's game against Everton tomorrow.

United's six-game winning run came to a cruel and unfortunate end last week at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea edged a 1-0 victory courtesy of an Eden Hazard counter.
