Marouane Fellaini's afro was one of the few constants in this ever-changing world.

Having recently missed out on the latest Belgium squad, Marouane Fellaini decided to perk himself up by staying at home and treating himself to a bold new makeover.

A week or so before his 31st birthday, Fellaini has streamlined his look by shaving off the dense mound of wiry hair that he's been proudly sporting (and sprouting) atop his head for the past decade or more.

Sergio Aguero shrugs off talk of an unbeaten Premier League season after Manchester City's victory over rivals Manchester United.
