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 (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.

Di Maria (hamstring) came on in the 61st minute for Robin van Persie during Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday. He finished with four shots, three on goal, and completed all 13 of his pass attempts.

Di Maria was very active in the attack after coming on, though he couldn't do enough to get United all three points. With 30 minutes under his belt, he could get back in the starting XI on Boxing Day against Newcastle.

Manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that Di Maria (hamstring) could be available off the bench Saturday at Aston Villa, but likely wouldn't start because of a lack of match fitness.

Di Maria has been sidelined recently with the hamstring issue, with Juan Mata taking on a bigger role in the attack. If Di Maria is able to play Saturday and avoid a setback, he looks likely to start Boxing Day against Newcastle.
