Manchester United got the better of Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday, and the man who scored the winning goal was a certain Radamel Falcao.
The Colombia international striker found the target just past the hour mark from close range after collecting a pass from Angel di Maria.
It was the 28-year-old’s first goal for the Red Devils. Having joined the Manchester outfit from AS Monaco on a season-long loan deal on transfer deadline day, Falcao had come close to scoring a number of times in previous matches, and on Sunday he finally opened his account for United.

Falcao is one of the best strikers in the world and (arguably?) the best finisher on the planet. The former FC Porto and Atletico Madrid striker has now fully recovered from a long-term knee injury, and him getting back to scoring spells danger for opposition defences in the Premier League.
That’s the opinion of Liverpool legend Graeme Souness, who told Sky Sports: ‘If he does get up to speed, Falcao, who knows what he can do?’
Former Manchester United star Gary Neville added: 'I think he is getting fitter all the time’.
The United legend further said that with no Champions League and League Cup matches for Louis van Gaal’s side in midweek, it is only going to help Falcao.
‘From that point of view he should only get better in the next few weeks and will be better having a goal inside of him’, added the former England international.
