Manchester United legend Denis Law has backed Radamel Falcao to start finding his magic touch at the club. 

As reported by the club's official website, Law has insisted that the Colombian hit-man will come good at Old Trafford as he goes in search of securing a permanent deal with the side.

In truth, Falcao has struggled at the Theatre of Dreams since making the switch to England's elite division this past summer as he's failed to maintain his fitness throughout the course of the season so far.  

The Colombian ace has only found the net on one occasion in the Premier League this season, but Law has backed him to start finding the net. 

He will come good 

In a column for United Review, Law said:"Falcao looks well and is a very good player. There is no doubt about that and once he gets fully fit and feels right, he will come good.

"Good players will always play well, no matter which team they go to. It's just a matter of slotting in."

The former striker has also insisted that it can be tricky for overseas stars to adapt to the Premier League.

He continued by saying: "I think it can be difficult for overseas players to adapt. Not as difficult probably as it was in our day because the world has shrunk. We had a telephone and that was basically it.

"Now with the communications we have today, you don't feel so isolated from another country but it's still not easy to settle into a new country with a different way of life, different food and of course, the language as well. But these guys are young and pick things up."

Liverpool showdown 

Despite failing to get off the bench in the club's 2-1 victory over Southampton on Monday night, the forward will be desperate to be handed a starring role against rivals Liverpool this Sunday. 

The Colombian ace could be in line for a starting role, with Juan Mata dropping to the bench. It appears, then, that Louis van Gaal could start the striker alongside Robin van Persie, with captain Wayne Rooney occupying the No.10 role. 

Manchester United fans will certainly be in confident mood ahead of the Liverpool showdown after the club managed to secure their fifth straight league victory in their last outing. 

Liverpool, meanwhile, are struggling and will be desperate to gain a result themselves as they play catch up on their rivals in the race to secure Champions League football.
