Marouane Fellaini’s shot hit a steward sitting near the corner flag and knocked him off his stool towards the end of Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat of Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.
With the hosts already leading 3-1, the Man Utd midfielder’s wild attempt in the 84th minute went way wide of the post before crashing into the unsuspecting stadium official.

The fall caused by Fellaini’s 30-yarder was caught on the television coverage of the game and then widely shared on social media.
