Speaking to the club’s official site after the game, the Dutchman hailed Falcao and Robin van Persie for their performances, singling out the on-loan Colombian international for improving his form.

“I’m more happy that Falcao scored because I think Robin has scored enough goals already,” van Gaal said.

“Falcao needs that goal more than Robin. But, after all, it’s fantastic they scored – beautiful goals I think with very quick transition for the goal by Falcao, with Robin also having a big part in it, so I’m very happy.”

Falcao’s goal against the Foxes was only his fourth of the season since he joined the club from AS Monaco on a season-long deal.
