Angel di Maria is scheduled to be sent for a scan on his groin ahead of Manchester United’s game against Chelsea this weekend, ESPN reports.
The Argentinian was unable to complete the full 90 minutes against West Brom and had an ice pack strapped to his leg immediately after being taken off, leading to concerns about his fitness ahead of this weekend.
Given how important Di Maria has been to the positive football United have played, the last thing Louis van Gaal would want ahead of the toughest game this season is Di Maria to be unavailable for selection.
Even if Di Maria is fit to start against Chelsea, he is still nowhere near his peak fitness and has always had to be substituted in the latter stages but that should change the more he plays.
What’s been most impressive so far about Di Maria is the fact he has been playing so well when not fully fit, so fans are excited to see just how influential he can be when 100% fit.
