It’s not the first time De Gea has been named in a Team of the Week this season. The Spaniard has been in stunning form for Man United all season long and if he can continue in this sort of form, it will be a surprise to not see him named Goalkeeper of the Year by the Premier League.
As for Falcao, it’s a sign of progress. He might not have scored against QPR but he did everything else and if not for an inspired performance by Robert Green in goal, the Colombian striker could have had a hat-trick on another day.
After criticism from Louis van Gaal last week, it was the perfect response from Falcao that showed he is ready to prove his worth.
Valencia played well at right-back for Man United and Crooks went as far as to label him as an extraordinary player for his service to the club. That’s a bit strong as Valencia has put in some good and performances at right-back / right wing-back this season in equal measure.
Either way, it’s good to have some United players in any Team of the Week after getting back to winning ways.
