Manchester United player, Fellaini didn’t start the game but he came on after the first half and scored the winner in less than 10 minutes of play. Even as his manager Jose Mourinho is looking to strengthen his side so that they can snatch the Premier League title next season, Fellaini might be giving him something to consider.

He scored 4 goals in 3 matches at the Season was at it’s end and now he has put Conte in a dilemma of dropping him or not.
Thibaut Courtois was in the post for Belgium and he exhibited his usual talent which is why Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane would ensure he gets him to his team. Zidane is still in pursuit of Courtois after Manchester United rejected a £60 million deal for their goalkeeper, David De Gea but the Belgium international insists he is happy at Chelsea.
Chelsea just sold Asmir Begovic to Bournemouth and are looking for a back up goalkeeper for Courtois. Courtois is enjoying success at Chelsea and he won the Premier League Golden Glove for his hard-work so he wants to stay for greater things ahead.
