Radamel Falcao's message to Manchester United fans after Spurs win

Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao has taken to Twitter to express his delight at the manner of his team's performance during Sunday's 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur, telling his fans on social media that the players will "keep fighting" to finish as high in the Premier League table as possible.

First half goals from Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Red Devils captain Wayne Rooney secured an emphatic win against Mauricio Pochettino's men at Old Trafford yesterday afternoon, strengthening their position in that all-important fourth and final Champions League spot.

The Colombia international was named on the bench by Louis van Gaal for the Spurs clash, but did make a brief appearance as an 83rd minute replacement for man-of-the-match Fellaini, and Falcao seemed to enjoy his late cameo judging by his latest online post.

The 29-year-old might not have made the kind of impact that was expected when he first arrived in England on loan from AS Monaco, but the South American marksman will continue to give his all for Manchester United in the hope of taking them back into Europe's elite club competition.

Falcao is unlikely to be around to take part next term, though, as the club must pay a mouthwatering sum of money to make the talisman's transfer to the Theatre of Dreams permanent - and based on his performances so far it just doesn't seem worth the investment.

Instead, the former FC Porto and Atletico Madrid frontman is expected to return to France before probably being sold on to another interested suitor ahead of 2015/16, which would bring to an end a disappointing debut campaign in the English top-flight.

However, despite the individual difficulties that Falcao is experiencing it's good to see he's fully focused on the collective goal which is cementing the Premier League giants back in the higher echelons of the division.

With 56 points from 29 matches played the Red Devils are just two points behind local rivals Manchester City in second spot, with Arsenal the only side separating them in third place with 57 points.

Liverpool - who play Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium tonight - are currently United's closest competitors in fifth spot, and they can move to within two points of Van Gaal's charges with victory in south Wales on Monday evening.

Manchester United fans: Do you think you'll finish in the top four and qualify for next season's Champions League? What role - if any - will Radamel Falcao play in the nine remaining games this term? Share your thoughts below...
