Manager Louis van Gaal confirmed Friday that Di Maria will not play Sunday against Liverpool due to his hamstring injury.

Di Maria was expected to play after suffering the injury Nov. 29 against Hull, but it appears he'll be out longer, as Van Gaal added that he wasn't sure when the Argentine would return. Juan Mata will likely continue to start and take free kicks while Di Maria is sidelined.

Di Maria will not play against Southampton on Monday because of the hamstring injury he suffered last Saturday against Hull City, manager Louis van Gaal said Tuesday. "Di Maria is not so heavy, but of course he shall not play against Southampton," van Gaal said. "But you never know."

United were able to pull out a 2-1 win over Stoke City on Tuesday without di Maria and captain Wayne Rooney, who had previously said he would play through his knee injury. Van Gaal seems to have left himself a little room to have di Maria return, but in all likelihood, he'll be replaced in the starting XI again by Ander Herrera, who picked up an assist against Stoke.

Di Maria will have to undergo additional scans to determine how long he will be out, though with the quick turnaround, he could be in danger of missing two matches in seven days after playing only 14 minutes against Hull.

After picking up an assist in last weekend's win over Arsenal, Di Maria is now tied for third in the Premier League with six assists.

Di Maria trails only Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas (10) and Swansea City's Gylfi Sigurdsson (seven) for the league lead, and he has impressively hit that number in only 10 league games. He'll look to extend his assist streak to three games Saturday against Hull City.
