Angel Di Maria had another frustrating game as he again failed to influence for Manchester United away from home.
As Louis van Gaal‘s men once again came from behind to draw 1-1 away from home, which is becoming a theme, Di Maria showed flashes of pace but couldn’t find an end product.
The Argentinian started life at Old Trafford so well, scoring three goals in four games but only a strike against Yeovil Town has since followed.
He returned to some kind of good form against Leicester but playing with no pace ahead of him is clearly hampering his creativeness and fans want to see Di Maria utilised better by Louis van Gaal.
You can’t blame Di Maria and Rooney for their poor form. Rooney is striker and Di Maria is LCM not CAM Or ST. #mufc

Think Di Maria’s price tag has people deluded. Yeah he’s not exactly playing amazing but he’s not Zidane. Always unorthodox and chaotic.

Di Maria hasn’t been doing much lately. Poor decision making at times. Worried.

Di Maria at Utd looks like a locked up abroad episode.

Di Maria played despite seeing his new house burgled earlier in the week and perhaps the incident and upheaval in his life played on his mind somewhat.
Still, his ball into the box in stoppage time finally led to United’s equaliser and as last week against Leicester and Cambridge, he is still contributing to United’s goals even if his performances have been poor.
Burnley at home on Wednesday may be the perfect opportunity to return to the form that made United smash their club transfer record to bring him from Real Madrid.
