United were eliminated from the competition, suffering a 1-3 defeat on aggregate, and the big-money midfielder came in for sustained criticism from sections of the support.
Abuse was particularly forthcoming following an unwieldy turn in the centre circle, some backwards passing and what some fans saw as a decisive late miss.
The best Marouane Fellaini elbow jokes from Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool:
Fellaini asking for a penalty is like a death row inmate asking for silk linen.

£1 for every Fellaini elbow this season would bail Greece out.

Fellaini's finishing is nowhere near as deadly as his elbows.

Any 15 year olds willing to set up Fellaini so he can join Adam Johnson?

I really hope @OptaJoe is tracking Fellaini's elbows landed to elbows thrown ratio.

The things we accomplished this season :
1) Out of CL
2) Out of EL
3) Out of title race
4) Out of FA Cup
5) LVG-Fellaini relationship.
