Radamel Falcao failed to capitalise on recent good form as Manchester United struggled to break down a stubborn Yeovil Town side.
Both Falcao and James Wilson failed to really get into good goalscoring opportunities but a lack of creativity from midfield ruined any chance of either getting among the goals early on.
Falcao may have come to life late on when Yeovil were left exposed but with such a run of games in a short space of time, it was understandable to see the Colombian subbed.
Fans are still puzzled by Falcao given his fitness issues whilst some believe he is on the verge of coming good after two goals over Christmas.
Was surprised to see Falcao come off when we brought more creativity on, the service to him and Wilson was poor first half. #MatchdayMac

Falcao off at 60 minutes again! Utd didn't put a quality ball into him the entire game.

About time Falcao was taken off.

Falcao upfront against yeovil town and they cant get the ball to him.

Given his poacher’s instinct, it will have been frustrating for the striker to receive little service whilst others believe he should be capable of creating his own chances against League One opposition.
With a week to rest, supporters will hope to see Falcao fit and fresh next week in a big game against Southampton.
