PHOTOS: Falcao in United training - Carrick also returns

The Manchester United duo have both been pictured in training today, ahead of the QPR game at the weekend.

Falcao has been pictured in Manchester United training for the first time today, as the team prepare to face QPR at the weekend.

The Colombian joined United on deadline day in one of the summer's marquee deals and his first appearance is highly anticipated by Red Devils fans.

The powerful forward is expected to add a new dimension to their forward line and fire them up the table, after what has been a poor start to the season. 

United are yet to win a competitive game this campaign, but there is hope that their additions late on in the window will provide them with enough quality to push on up the table. 

Equally important to that will be that long-serving members of the squad step up to the plate and take the responsibility of guiding this new look United side back into title contention. 

One of the players who has the ability to do this is Michael Carrick, and his return to training today was also a timely boost. 

The England international has been out injured since the start of the campaign, but appears to be edging towards fitness now and his return to the midfield will give Louis Van Gaal even more quality to utilise in midfield.
