Falcao scores

England – Radamel Falcao has scored his first goal for Manchester United in a 2-1 win over Everton as the Red Devils won consecutive Premier League games for the first time under manager Louis Van Gaal.

Angel Di Maria opened the scoring for the hosts yesterday before Leighton Baines had a penalty saved by United keeper David de Gea.

The England international then picked out Steven Naismith, who put the teams level in the 55th minute.

Falcao, who joined United on loan from Monaco during the summer, sealed his team’s win seven minutes later, slotting home past Tim Howard after di Maria’s shot landed in the Colombian’s path.

De Gea made a stunning save in stoppage time to tip over the bar Bryan Oviedo’s left-foot shot from 20 metres.
