Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal reveals Falcao, Evans, Jones and Rafael won’t start against Arsenal

Ahead of their clash against Arsenal, Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has revealed Radamel Falcao, Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Rafael da Silva won’t be starting, reports the Express.

When asked if the quarter would start against Arsenal, Van Gaal replied: “No, I don’t think so because now some of them have already not played for five, six, seven weeks. They could sit on the bench because they can play 20 minutes but I cannot put a lot of players who are not 100 per cent fit on the bench.”

“You saw what happened with (Paddy) McNair (getting cramp against Crystal Palace) because the rhythm of the game is very high in the Premier League,” he added.

United were forced to play young defender Paddy McNair, midfielder Daley Blind and Antonio Valencia in the defence against Crystal Palace due to their growing injury list.
