After a long time, the Colombian superstar was given a full 90 minutes by Van Gaal to hit back at his critics against Chelsea. At the end of the match, the critics and Chelsea turned out victories as the former Atletico Madrid forward did very little to influence the game, easily being nullified by the rock-solid defensive wall of the Blues. Being embargoed with hammering pressure mentally as well as not a 100% fit physically, the Red Devils need to place him back to the bench against Everton at Goodison Park this Sunday. There are plenty of reports stating that intrinsic finisher Robin Van Persie has recovered from his recent injury and should be partnering Juan Mata and Fellaini in the offensive half. Falcao is surely among the flop captures of the season as Manchester United is already looking at Porto for the availability of fellow compatriot Jackson Martinez.
He has been a prolific powerhouse for the Clarets upfront this season, fairly holding the ultimate responsibility to ensure his team stays in the Premier League next season. On the other hand, the England international hasn’t found the back of the net in the last eight games plus failing to create clear-cut chances. The 22-year old who is under the radar of numerous top guns, has ushered his side with nine goals and four assists till date. Sean Dyche’s men have failed to secure three points in the previous four matches, hence this weekend a fervent performance is expected by Burnley when they welcome fellow relegation threatened Leicester City to Turf Moor. The Foxes are on rampage mode lately, could be a tricky fixture but Danny Ings needs to end his goal drought to restore trust from fantasy premier league managers.
It’s been quite some time the Argentinian has featured in the sizzling category, clearly he was soaked into murkiness together with his team, who have dropped from title contenders to top four survivors. He scored two well-taken goals against Manchester United, salvaging his own personal performance at the Old Trafford. Last weekend, he notched a goal at the Etihad Stadium to gun down West Ham United, the Citizens’ first Premier League triumph in nearly a month. The 26-year old is now the joint-top scorer in the league alongside Harry Kane and should be extending his goal streak this weekend against the rejuvenated Aston Villa.
Robin van Persie – The stirring striker has recovered from injury and should be replacing the wagering Falcao in the starting lineup.
Gleen Murray – A revitalized player under Alan Pardew, the target man has been on fine form.
Christian Benteke – The beast is with an appetite, six goals in his last eight league matches plus scored a splendid goal against Liverpool to mount his side to the FA Cup finals.
Harry Kane – The joint-top scorer in the league, the whiz kid has been the best player from North London this campaign.
Olivier Giroud – 14 goals and three assists, it’s somewhat outstanding to witness the Frenchman’s blistering form despite a lengthy medical sideline.
