Manchester United morning news: Scholes on change LvG must make, Falcao worry

A round up of news stories this morning about Manchester United.

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes says there’s a good chance Marouane Fellaini could start against Chelsea.

The Belgian scored a vital goal for United in their 2-2 draw against West Brom at the start of this week.

“I think there is a good chance that he [Fellaini] will start against Chelsea, not least because he looked like the man to take care of Cesc Fabregas if Louis van Gaal decides to assign that job,” wrote Scholes for the Independent.

Scholes has also claimed that United striker Radamel Falcao doesn’t look right.

Falcao joined the club at the back end of the summer transfer window, paving the way for Danny Welbeck to link up with Arsenal.

“My concern, from United’s point of view, is Radamel Falcao. Is he match-fit? Is he even free of injury? He still does not look quite right to me. On Monday’s evidence it will be Van Persie who starts on Sunday,” added Scholes.

The Telegraph claims Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will use Andre Schurrle up front against United this weekend.

Diego Costa is out of action and Loic Remy has a groin injury, which could see Schurrle favoured ahead of the ageing Didier Drogba.

Schurrle missed the mid-week win against Maribor with illness.
