Radamel Falcao enjoyed a fruitful international break with Colombia having scored three goals in two appearances.
It was the perfect way for him to regain some confidence which he has had so little of in recent performances for Manchester United.
Coming into the game against Aston Villa, it puts Falcao in a much better position to try and break into United’s starting XI but do the fans want to see him there?
We asked our Twitter followers whether they felt Falcao should start today against Villa:
@PeoplesPerson_ No. The same XI as Tottenham and Liverpool.

@peoplesperson_ who is he going to bench? Valencia, Jones? that’s only if he can play their positions. Rooney can’t lose his spot to him.

@PeoplesPerson_ Nope. Even my nan could score against Bahrain

@PeoplesPerson_ no. Can come off the bench though

That’s a no, and for justified reasons.
It’s more to do with the fact United are in great form right now, so if it isn’t broken don’t fix it. Falcao coming in would either mean a switch of formation or a switch of position for Rooney, neither of which would benefit United right now.
Falcao should get some minutes from the bench but he’ll almost certainly have to wait for his return to the starting XI.
