A worrying Angel Di Maria stat for Manchester United fans?

Angel Di Maria

Angel Di Maria has been Manchester United least accurate passer so far this season.

Angel Di Maria may have made an impressive start to life as a Manchester United player, but it appears there is still room for improvement from the Argentine.

Although his energy has caught the eye in the centre of the pitch and he has added a touch of class to proceedings at Old Trafford, his passing still needs some working on.

The former Real Madrid man is reputed for his ability to forge opportunities for others, but his distribution as been worse than any other outfield player in the United team so far this season.

Wayne Rooney FW Man Utd 284 83.8% 6 509
Ángel Di María MF Man Utd 204 79.4% 4 317

Di Maria has made just 79% of his attempts to find a teammate, with only David De Gea having a worse pass accuracy percentage in the team.

It may be the only weakness that he has shown so far during his time at the Red Devils, but it will certainly be one which Louis Van Gaal is looking to iron out as his £60 million purchase adapts to the English game.

The Dutchman puts a precedence on retaining possession and he will not be happy seeing Di Maria as the most wasteful member of his current first-team squad.

Di Maria was brought to the club to provide a spark and be a match-winner and he certainly has proven he can do that during his initial time in England, but it would appear that he still hasn't hit top form yet.

He will be hoping to by more precise with his passing on Sunday when his side take on Everton, though.

Di Maria looks a certain starter in the game against the Toffees as the Red Devils look to continue their climb up the table and towards the Champions League places, where they are so determined to finish in this season.
