The £59 million summer signing from Real Madrid has been described as a panic buy in some reports, but he showed the sort of performance he’s capable of against a very strong team with three assists and a goal during the game.
One of the assists was a sublime piece of skill which saw Di Maria perform a type of banana pass in behind the German defence to setup one of his assists.
Di Maria made his Premier League debut for United in the goalless draw away at Burnley and he received a mixed reaction for his performance.
However, he’s a world class player and regardless of the cash United paid to sign him, he has the ability to change games single handed, which will be important for United as they look to accumulate points over the rest of the campaign.
Take a look at highlights from the game below.
