Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao has declared himself fit and ready for action after tweeting a message to Red Devils supporters to inform them he's back in training and ready to help the team. (Twitter)

The Colombia international's post comes fresh off the back of Saturday's 2-1 win over Arsenal, and provides Louis van Gaal with a much needed boost ahead of a busy run of Premier League fixtures.

Falcao's return from a calf injury couldn't come at a better time, particularly as Robin van Persie's terrible run of form continues - with the Dutchman disappointing again at the Emirates this weekend.

The £24 million signing from Arsenal was a relative spectator against his former club, contributing just 13 touches - three of which were corners - in the crunch clash in north London.

Manchester United are yet to see the best of the South American marksman either, particularly given the fact they are paying him £265,000-a-week in wages, but with games against Hull and Stoke City to come at Old Trafford, Falcao will sense an opportunity to make an impact and get back on the goalscoring trail.

Following back-to-back home games, Van Gaal's side travel to St Mary's to face this season's surprise package Southampton, hopefully by which point Falcao will be firing on all cylinders. 

Check out Radamel Falcao's tweet to Manchester United supporters below, confirming that he's back in contention for a place in Louis van Gaal's side.
