Manchester United made it five successive win’s at Southampton last night thanks to a double from Robin van Persie.
Louis van Gaal admitted his team were fortunate to come away will all three points after a nervy performance.
But with the quality match-winners such as van Persie at United’s disposal, they always look likely to pick up points despite not playing well.
One of those match-winners was expected to be Radamel Falcao who completed a loan move to Old Trafford on deadline day.
The Colombian international forward has been a disappointment so far however with just one goal to his name and fitness problems once again proving an issue.
And Louis van Gaal has hardly spoke in glowing terms about his on-loan forward, claiming he is ‘not interested’ in the reports suggesting Falcao is unhappy with his lack of playing time.
“I’m not interested,” van Gaal said. “He has to follow my philosophy. Do you understand that? Yes, I’m here because of that.”
With Falcao’s long-term future at Manchester United currently in doubt, we have identified five possible alternatives to the Colombian for the Red Devils to consider.
