Di Maria started Saturday's Premier League match against Sunderland, but he was pulled at halftime in favor of Adnan Januzaj, finishing with just two shots (none on goal), seven crosses and two key passes.

With Robin van Persie out with an ankle injury, Wayne Rooney moved back up to forward, while di Maria was used out on the right wing. However, he failed to get anything going and was consistently on the ground as if he was injured. Manager Louis van Gaal still hasn't figured out how to use di Maria properly, with many expecting the Argentine to potentially ask out if United don't finish in the top-4.

Di Maria assisted on Ander Herrera's goal during Manchester United's 2-1 loss at Swansea City on Saturday.

Di Maria has picked up an assist in both of his last two Premier League matches to give him a total of eight on the season, which puts him behind only Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas (15) in the league.

Di Maria, lining up as a striker next to Falcao, took four shots, but none were on goal, while making three key passes during Manchester United's 2-0 win over QPR on Saturday.

Manager Louis van Gaal continues to experiment with di Maria playing up front, as last week he did so next to Robin van Persie, who missed out against Rangers with an ankle injury. Wayne Rooney has slotted back into di Maria's midfield spot, though with such little offensive bite, it's possible that van Gaal will switch them back to their more natural positions.

Di Maria came off in the 71st minute of Manchester United's 1-0 loss to Southampton on Sunday, but manager Louis van Gaal confirmed after the match that there was no injury related to the substitution. "He is not injured but he needs match rhythm" van Gaal said. "That is why I had to change.

Di Maria returned from a pelvis injury and scored in last Sunday's FA Cup match against Yeovil Town, but he's still not fully match fit, hence the sub. He finished with three shots, one key pass and one interception against the Saints, and with a full week of training, he could be closer to going a full 90 minutes Saturday against QPR.

Di Maria came on for Falcao in the 60th minute and was still able to get off four shots, three of which landed on goal. With his legs back under him, he should be expected to start next Sunday at home against Southampton.

Di Maria (thigh) was unable to pass fit for Thursday's Premier League match against Stoke City.

Di Maria's thigh injury is still bothering him, but he'll get a bit of a break to help in his recovery, as United don't play their next Premier League match until Jan. 11 against Southampton.

Di Maria is considered doubtful to play Sunday against Tottenham after picking up a thigh injury in training earlier this week.

Di Maria was unable to play against Newcastle on Boxing Day and the quick turnaround did him no favors and he'll likely miss another game. If he's unable to go, Juan Mata is expected to continue to start in his place.
