Argentine press react to Angel di Maria display vs Everton

Angel Di Maria

The biggest news outlet in Argentina reveled in Angel di Maria's performance for Manchester United but were more impressed by David de Gea.

Angel di Maria once again returned from Manchester United with the match-day ball as the Argentine was responsible for both of his side's goals in their 2-1 victory over Everton at Old Trafford yesterday, Sunday.

The forward, who scored the first before assisting Radamel Falcao for the second, put in such a strong performance that he attracted the attention of the press in his native Argentina, however, he was not the only Manchester United star who left a great impression.

"[Di Maria] scored in the 2-1 win over Everton but goalkeeper De Gea saved a penalty and two seemingly impossible shots," a report in Clarin stated.

"While Di Maria scored the first and provided the pass that allowed Falcao to grab the second, the great man of the match was actually goalkeeper David De Gea - as he ensure Louis van Gaal's team avoided what could have been a costly draw."

Clarin call di Maria the "Rosarino" after the district he grew up in and much of their match report focused on his various contributions, whether a shot on goal or providing a pass that required great vision, yet the newspaper also lauded de Gea's penalty stop on Leighton Baines and also noted the visitor's 'never-say-die' attitude.
