Falcao assisted on Robin van Persie's 13th minute goal during Manchester United's shocking 5-3 loss to Leicester City on Sunday.

Falcao also hit the woodwork later in the game, keeping him from his first United goal. He started up front with RVP and Wayne Rooney, and while they allowed five goals, there's no reason for Falcao to move back to the bench.

Falcao: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Falcao is in the starting XI for Manchester United's Premier League match at Leicester City on Sunday.

Falcao, who was used as a substitute last week against QPR, will start up front with Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney, with Juan Mata moving to the bench. Manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that he is confident Falcao will be able to play with RVP and fantasy owners will get their first look Sunday in a very favorable matchup.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that he believes Falcao and Robin van Persie could play together despite the two forwards playing the same position. "I don't think that Falcao interferes with van Persie or that he interferes with Falcao. Falcao is a very good striker, I already said that when he came here in his first press conference."

It's an embarrassment of riches for Manchester United, which puts fantasy owners at a bit of a disadvantage because in all likelihood Falcao and RVP will eat into each other's minutes more than the two of them playing together. Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney could be moved back a bit, given that he also tries to play more forward.

Falcao subbed on for Juan Mata in the 67th minute of Manchester United's 4-0 rout of QPR on Sunday and he took one shot, which was on-goal.

It was a bit of a surprise that Falcao came off the bench, although it's expected that he will be inserted into the starting XI soon enough, with Juan Mata potentially moving to the bench to make way for Wayne Rooney in midfield.

Falcao is available off the bench for Manchester United's Premier League match against QPR on Sunday.

Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney are starting up front for United, but it would be shocking if Falcao didn't make his club debut at some point against QPR.

Falcao joined Manchester United on Monday on a one-year loan deal from AS Monaco with the option to buy at the end of the season.

Falcao is an elite goal-scorer who will boost the Manchester United attack even further. While he'll do nothing for their defensive woes, his scoring abilities cannot be questioned and he should make for an excellent fantasy start.

Manchester United have reportedly agreed to a loan deal with AS Monaco for Falcao, according to ESPN FC.

Falcao is an elite goal-scorer who missed the World Cup after tearing his ACL in January. He is back to full fitness and should be an excellent addition to United, although it may take some time for manager Louis van Gaal to figure out how to play him next to Robin van Persie.

Falcao scored Monaco's only goal in a 2-1 home loss to Lorient on Sunday.

Falcao converted from the penalty spot in the 78th minute to open his 2014-15 account. The Colombian striker has been linked with a number of top clubs throughout the transfer window, but it will take quite the offer to lure him away from Monaco, who have already lost one world-class player in James Rodriguez to Real Madrid.
