Louis van Gaal is demanding his high-profile players prove they are good enough to play for his Manchester United side, writes Tim Rich.

“They have to show it now and I hope they shall show it,” he said before this afternoon’s game against Queens Park Rangers at Old Trafford.

When I present Falcao or Daley Blind (for their introductory press conferences), I say something about their qualities. You need the arguments about why I buy players; that is logical.

"After that it is over. What I have to say about Falcao, what I have to say about Robin van Persie, what I have to say about Wayne Rooney does not matter. They are great players, they have great records but you have to do it in the game on Sunday."
