At 2-0 down, the Colombian was introduced for Marouane Fellaini and immediately placed up front, but United’s frustrating performance gave little hope to Falcao.
He did put the ball in the net with a neat finish after rounding Tim Howard but it was ruled out for offside, topping off United’s afternoon as a whole.
It would still be difficult to question Falcao’s work ethic, but supporters are fast running out of patience with just four games of the season to go.
Easy to criticise Falcao but if we continue to punt it up to him, of course he won’t succeed. A ball into feet at least once would be good!

He’s not been good, but we still do not feed Falcao correctly or play to his strengths. Never mind #MUFC

Falcao just should not be kept by us next season…. See no reason to hold onto him.

Falcao is the dog’s bollocks. By which I mean we could genuinely play a canine testicle up front and it’d have the same effect.

Would rather have Macheda on the pitch than Falcao. At least he did something crucial for United.

It can still be seen week in, week out, that supporters do have a strong bond with Falcao but it would be almost impossible to think the striker will stay at Old Trafford beyond next month.
With United still unlikely to drop out of the top four, fans will at least hope to get the chance to see him one more time at Old Trafford, hopefully signing off with a goal against Arsenal.
