Concerns over Di Maria's fitness began after the midfielder was substituted in the second half of Manchester United's 2-2 draw with West Brom on Monday, reports the Daily Mail.

The midfielder came off the field in the 76th minute after being seen holding his thigh, and then using an ice pack on his groin after coming off the field. We will have to wait to see the staff's assessment of Di Maria's fitness as the week progresses.

Di Maria scored in the 27th minute and then picked up an assist on Falcao's 62nd-minute goal during Manchester United's 2-1 win over Everton on Sunday.

Di Maria has been absolutely brilliant for Manchester United, as he has now scored a goal and posted an assist in three of his last four games. His assist Sunday was a bit generous, as he looked to actually be taking a shot, but Falcao redirected it into the goal to give the Argentine his third assist in five Premier League games this season. He's an elite fantasy midfielder and is worth every penny he costs in salary cap games.

Di Maria had a goal and an assist in Manchester United's 5-3 loss to Leicester City on Sunday.

Di Maria was subbed off in the 76th minute for Juan Mata and Leicester scored twice more before the final whistle to give Manchester United one of its worst losses ever. That being said, di Maria was magical again, as he now has two goals and two assists in his last two Premier League matches.

Di Maria had a goal and an assist in Manchester United's 4-0 rout of QPR on Sunday.

Di Maria's goal came off a free kick that simply slipped past every player on the pitch to find the back of the net, marking his first score for the Red Devils. He's expected to be more of a distributor this season and taking free kicks will certainly help his assist chances.

Di Maria (calf) is in the starting XI for Manchester United's Premier League match against QPR on Sunday.

Di Maria picked up a minor calf injury against Burnley before the international break, but made a late substitute appearance for Brazil against Germany and is no longer bothered by the ailment. He is expected to shoulder a big part of the offensive load this season, though more as a distributor than a goal-scorer.

Di Maria suffered a calf injury during Manchester United's scoreless draw with Burnley last weekend, but manager Louis van Gaal confirmed that it is not serious, ESPN FC reports.

Di Maria was subbed off after 70 minutes, but van Gaal said it was simply a precaution for a player who was making his Premier League debut.
