Remember when it seemed Man United were doomed if Marouane Fellaini was playing? A last fro of the dice, you might say.
Granted, some fans still feel this is true, but he has become an important first team player under Jose Mourinho and ahead of the Manchester derby, United could be without both Fellaini and Paul Pogba.
The latter is suspended, while the former is struggling with injury. However, Mourinho claims the Belgian has a ‘chance’ of playing against Man City at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Below, talkSPORT looks at Man United in the Premier League season and how they have fared with and without Fellaini and Pogba.
