Since joining Manchester United prior to last season, Marouane Fellaini has become the subject of endless jokes and no longer just for his choice of hairstyle. The midfielder did not start Man United's Monday night game against West Brom, but just before he came on, West Brom's official Twitter account decided to get in on the fun.

Not what you might expect from an official social media account, but clever nonetheless. And to prove that karmic retribution is alive and well, Fellaini, who had yet to score a goal for Man United in a competitive match, entered the game with West Brom up 1-0 at the start of the second half. JUST THREE MINUTES LATER, Fellaini didn't just score an equalizer, but he scored a skillful and emphatic equalizer that said, "You can stuff your banter in a bag!"

Saido Berahino restored the Baggies lead in the 66th minute, but Man United equalized a second time with a goal from Daley Blind in the 87th minute. The match ended in a 2-2 draw and somewhere in Manchester a Fellaini wig salesman told his family that they would soon be able to eat again.

West Brom later offered a mealy-mouthed apology for their Fellaini tweet.

Meanwhile, Fellaini is sorry that he's not sorry about scoring against them.
