Di Maria came on for Ashley Young in the 70th minute and assisted on Wayne Rooney's 79th-minute goal during Manchester United's 3-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Di Maria now has one assist in three straight club matches in all competitions, though two have come as a substitute. He now has 10 assists on the season, which is only five short of the club record, which is held by superstar David Beckham. Given how well he's playing, one would think that Di Maria should find his way into the starting XI, though Ander Herrera and Juan Mata are also playing well, giving manager Louis van Gaal big decisions to make heading into next weekend's Manchester derby.

Di Maria is available off the bench for Sunday's match against Liverpool.

Di Maria is eligible to play after a one-match ban, but he apparently doesn't fit into Louis van Gaal plan for the Anfield attack. Juan Mata will get the start in his stead.

Di Maria has been suspended one game for grabbing an official during Monday's FA Cup loss to Arsenal, The Telegraph reports.

Di Maria was lucky to escape with just the single match ban, which means he'll miss Sunday's game against Tottenham and will be eligible to face Liverpool on March 22.

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 returned from his pelvic injury to score in Manchester United's 2-0 FA Cup win over Yeovil Town on Sunday.

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.
