Marouane Fellaini has no doubts he'll become a better player working alongside his Manchester United teammates.

He responded to a series of pep talks from senior players, most notably Rio Ferdinand, to make an early favourable impression on the Old Trafford crowd.

"It is different here, compared to Everton, and everything is in place to help me improve as a player," he said.

"I am surrounded by better players, with more quality and better technique, and they have also demonstrated how much they care about me settling in quickly.

"They have gone to the trouble of spending time with me and offering advice, talking through any questions I wanted answering.

"The experienced players have been great with me, but others have played a part as well. They all have, and I appreciate it. It has helped me feel at home."
