Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has raised concerns about the fitness of Radamel Falcao, questioning whether the Colombian striker is free from the cruciate ligament injury that plagued him last season. (Independent)

The Red Devils marksman has made a modest start to life at Old Trafford, scoring just one goal in his first five appearances since joining Louis van Gaal's squad on a season-long loan from AS Monaco.

Scholes is adamant that Falcao doesn't look right, and for that reason believes Robin van Persie will lead the line when Manchester United take on Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho's side arrive in Manchester top of the table having made an unbeaten start to the new campaign, but Scholes says Van Gaal's men need to win.
