Rooney was keen to praise Fellaini's contribution afterwards, as was his manager.
"I thought he did really well," Rooney told MUTV. "He's a good player and different to anything we've got. He's big and strong in the middle of the park and can get up and down the pitch. He did really well against Palace, especially with it being his first start in a while. I'm delighted for him."
David Moyes agreed: "I'm pleased with how he played. He did well. He's come in and given us something different which we hoped he would. He made a chance for himself and should have scored, but it was only his first game for nearly three months, so he needs a bit of time to settle. Everyone needs that at times."
