Rooney surely remains the stand-out choice for Louis van Gaal. He has gone off the boil somewhat thanks to being pushed back into midfield at points but he is still United’s best striker this season.
As for Falcao and Van Persie, their indifferent campaigns won’t fill fans with much faith that they can turn it around and get back among the goals with only a few games left in the season:
Having Falcao and Van Persie on the bench looks great on paper but they really need to turn their fortunes around to be of any use to Van Gaal.
So long as Rooney is fit, he will remain United’s first choice striker and until his team-mates start scoring on a regular basis, that is unlikely to change.
