Dalglish wrote in the Mirror: "Fellaini's man-of-the-match display in Everton’s 1-0 win over Manchester United shows there is still a place for an old-fashioned target-man.
"Fellaini’s performance also proved there is no definitive way for teams to set up and play, despite the trend to try to copy Barcelona’s passing game.
"The key for any team is doing what works best for them and playing to their strengths, and David Moyes’ side certainly did that at Goodison Park on Monday.
"People have different opinions on the way they game should be played, but you can only play the way you feel is best.
"If you have a player of Fellaini’s size, aerial ability and physical strength, are you not going to utilise those assets?
"Of course you are."
