With Robin van Persie ruled out with an ankle injury, Louis van Gaal has claimed that James Wilson may start alongside Radamel Falcao for United’s game against Sunderland this afternoon.

It is a process between players. When Falcao is used to playing with van Persie then, when he plays with Wilson, he starts another process. That’s why I started with Falcao and van Persie. Now maybe is the time to start a process between Falcao and Wilson. They haven’t played so much together, I believe once or twice. You can see that Wilson is also left-footed like van Persie and Falcao is right-footed. I have used Rooney as the right-footed striker and Wilson as a left-footed striker, that is why I kept these four players at the start of the season. I expect, in theory, it is like that but, in practice, we have to wait and see.
