An injury hit Manchester United squad can get some relief from this news that Radamel Falcao is in contention to make a comeback against the Gunners next weekend. Falcao who have been out from the Manchester United squad and spent the International break watching his team-mates on International duty, will be fit for this important fixture.
Manchester United has been the most effected team by injuries this season. Already 10 of their main players are out for a long time due to injuries. And the condition became worse for Van Gaal after star Goal Keeper David De Gea injured his finger last night. The Spaniard had been in top form since the start of season but after sustaining an injury on International duty, he too joins an ever growing injury list of Manchester United.
However, all is not too bleak for the Red Devils at the moment. In a recent interview, the Colombian National team Coach was hopeful that Falcao is not far away from returning to field. Falcao, who arrived on Loan at Old Trafford on the transfer deadline day hasn’t been able to showcase his talent. In 5 matches so far, the Columbian has scored just 1 goal. And things became worse for him after suffering a calf injury 3 weeks ago. This injury forced him to miss key matches against Manchester City and Chelsea.
But he can take part in another vital match against Arsenal on 22nd of November. This will be an important match for Manchester United who look to close the gap from the fourth spot. And with Falcao in the squad, Louis Van Gaal will be more than happy to play against a strong opposition.
