Angel di Maria improves with performance against Newcastle

by Richard Laverty

Angel Di Maria was once again subbed off as Manchester United left it late to beat Newcastle United on Wednesday night.

To be fair to the Argentine, he was much livelier than against Sunderland and was really starting to cause a few issues for the hosts before he came off after an hour.

A beautiful ball over the top moments earlier saw Wayne Rooney have a goal wrongly disallowed and if the effort had stood, Di Maria would have hit the headlines for the right reasons.

Fans were less complimentary on Saturday but it’s clear supporters saw more life in the club record signing against Newcastle.

With United coming into such a pivotal run of games, Louis van Gaal has a big decision to make if he feels Di Maria is hampering the team’s performances.

But the side seemed to struggle for pace after the Argentine’s withdrawal and it would be hard to believe Di Maria won’t face Arsenal on Monday night.
