Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao returned to full training on Sunday afternoon after battling a calf injury for the past month.

The Colombian has not played since the 2-2 draw with West Brom on 20 October and has struggled for form and fitness at his new club, with just one goal so far this season.

After suffering a severe knee injury that kept him out of the World Cup, Falcao's had an ongoing problem this season that means he is yet to complete 90 minutes for United.

But the 28-year-old hinted that he could be back for the match against Hull at Old Trafford on Saturday.

"Back to training 100% and ready to help the team in the next games," said Falcao on Twitter.

United also posted a picture saying he had recovered from a calf injury.

Despite the 2-1 win at Arsenal on Saturday night, Manchester United striker Robin van Persie was virtually anonymous, touching the ball just 12 times in the 90 minutes and failing to have a shot on goal.
