Manchester United mocked after Fellaini congratulations


Manchester United were mocked on Twitter after sending their congratulations to Marouane Fellaini shortly before the bungling midfielder conceded a penalty at Everton.

The Belgium international - a former Everton player - came on after 85 minutes at Goodison Park to replace Henrikh Mkitharyan, prompting United's Twitter account to congratulate him on making his 100th appearance for the club.

But they had to send a second tweet two minutes later when Fellaini clumsily bundled into Idrissa Gueye inside the penalty area and referee Michael Oliver pointed to the spot. Everton full-back Leighton Baines dispatched it with ease to deny United a much-needed victory.
