Van Gaal has abandoned his plan to play with two strikers in a bid to give United a better balance and make them harder to beat.
And inevitably, questions will be raised over the feasibility over turning his loan move into a permanent deal at the end of the season.
Falcao is currently on the sidelines with a calf strain, but Van Gaal has warned that it may be difficult to accommodate him in the squad once he returns to full fitness.
“The problem for Falcao is that the balance of the team is more important than the individual,” he said.
“It is not his fault and not because of his performances.
“With the other system I could play with two strikers but then the balance wasn’t good and we had difficulties in the last half-hour of games.
“Since then we have scored fewer goals but conceded less and we have played the better teams [Chelsea and Manchester City] on an equal level, more or less.”
