Falcao scored his first goal for Chelsea in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

Falcao positioned himself brilliantly to tap in Pedro's excellent 79th minute cross the draw the home side level in a game they went on to lose. After replacing Willian in the 65th minute, he had a total of three shots and was preferred off the bench to fellow back-up striker Loic Remy.

Aleksandar Kolarov has always been a very solid attacking fullback, but his consistency in Manchester City's starting lineup this season has skyrocketed his fantasy value.

Falcao came on for Willian in the 83rd minute and his single shot was off target during Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Swansea City on Saturday.

Falcao got the substitute call ahead of Loic Remy, though it wasn't terribly prolific, as Diego Costa was able to go the full 90 minutes after being questionable with a hamstring injury. Remy and Falcao will continue to be reserve players while Costa is fit, which limits their respective fantasy upsides.

Falcao could start Saturday against Swansea City if Diego Costa (hamstring) is unable to play, manager Jose Mourinho said Friday.

Costa is expected to train Friday, but the decision about whether he will play Saturday won't be made until the training staff sees how his body responds. Falcao and Loic Remy are the two options for Mourinho if Costa can't go, with Remy the likeliest of the two given his longer tenure with the club in a similar role.

Falcao officially joined Chelsea on Friday on a season-long loan from Monaco.

Falcao spent last season on loan at Manchester United and managed only four goals while playing minimally. He was widely believed to be joining Chelsea this season in the hope that he can resurrect his career and potentially land a large transfer fee for Monaco, who has no interest in paying his exorbitant salary. He's unlikely to start at Chelsea ahead of Diego Costa in Premier League matches, though manager Jose Mourinho could start the two of them together, as they did briefly at Atletico Madrid.

Falcao is looking more likely to join Chelsea on loan this summer after another round of talks on Sunday, reports the Daily Mail.

Talks for the striker who struggled on loan at Manchester United last season continue to progress at Chelsea. Rumors have suggested that Chelsea do not want to pay Falcao's full asking price.

Falcao struggled with Manchester United this season, as he started in only 17 of his 29 appearances and contributed just four goals and four asissts.

The Colombian struggled with fitness, regular playing time and ineffectiveness at United, who paid Monaco nearly $25 million for his season-long loan. Falcao will head back to Monaco following the season but reports are already surfacing of a potential loan deal to Chelsea next season, with Liverpool also said to be interested.

Manchester United announced Sunday that Falcao has returned to Monaco, as the club decided not to purchase him following his season-long loan.

Falcao was a colossal disappointment with United, though he rarely looked fully fit after tearing his ACL last January. There will be no shortage of suitors for him this summer, though he may have to take a pay cut to make a move happen.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Falcao is not in the 18-man squad for Sunday's season finale against Hull City.

Reports surfaced Sunday that Falcao has been told he will not be brought back to United next season, so it's not overly surprising that he was not included in Sunday's team. Wayne Rooney will start up front, with Robin van Persie available off the bench.
