(Reuters) - Marouane Fellaini's goal in Tuesday's 2-0 win against Hull City will provide a much-needed boost to the under-pressure Belgium international, according to team mate Juan Mata. Fellaini has drawn criticism for his performances in the first half of the season and the fuzzy-haired midfielder's running celebration of his second-half goal in the League Cup semi-final looked like a release of emotion. It was good to hear the stadium singing his name because he deserved it." Fellaini, who lost his place under Jose Mourinho earlier this season, was booed by his own supporters having conceded a late penalty during a 1-1 draw at Everton in December.
