Manchester United coach Louis Van Gaal has declared that Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini is his secret weapon.
The Belgian has found himself playing much higher up the pitch in recent months and has scored a few vital goals, including the one against Preston North End in the FA Cup on Monday night.
Van Gaal admitted that the lanky Belgian offers something different when on the park and is a good weapon to have against more stubborn opponents.
"I have used Fellaini a lot of times already - more than ever and he scores more than ever," Van Gaal said.
"He is a player that when we cannot beat the pressure with quality, we can always beat the pressure. That is a quality.
"Now I have played him for the first time in his (preferred) position but we have a lot of players who can play there.
"The whole team did it well because they believe also that we could do it with this shape.
"As trainer-coach or a staff, you can change the system but your players have to believe in it and perform it and that is not so easy, and they do it and not for the first time. That is fantastic."
Fellaini has made 17 appearances for Manchester United this season and has scored four goals along the way.
