Everton boss Roberto Martinez has taken a swipe at Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

Martinez doesn’t believe Fellaini would get in his side, who start the day in fifth place, nine points ahead of United despite slipping up in midweek against Crystal Palace.

"You’re looking at McCarthy, Gareth Barry, Leon Osman —where would Fellaini fit in?" said Martinez, all good fuel for the Everton faithful waiting to bait their former idol.

"In football you move on so quickly. I’m just so happy with the squad that we have. It’s incredible to have that mixture of youth and experience. It looks like this side has been playing together for the last five years. It’s so natural."
