PHOTOS: Manchester United train ahead of Chelsea tie - Di Maria fit, Evans returns

Manchester United players train ahead of Chelsea fixture this weekend.

Manchester United face perhaps their biggest challenge of the season so far in the Premier League this season when they take on Chelsea in the Premier League.

Louis van Gaal is looking to get one over on his former protege Jose Mourinho - but there have been concerns all week that his star man could miss the game.

Angel Di Maria walked off gingerly in the Monday night game against West Brom so there was concern that he was a doubt for the game.

However he has been in United training most of this week and now the pictures from United training show him in action.

Di Maria has been a superb performer for the club since his £59.7 million move from Real Madrid in the summer.

He trained on Wednesday when the rest of team had a day off and has been in action all week, so he will be fighting fit for the game, bad news for Chelsea, great news for Manchester United.

The training session pictures also showed off some pictures of Ander Herrera in action, who was also classed as a doubt, while Antonio Valencia continues his recovery.

There was also a welcome return to the action for Jonny Evans. He has been out with a serious foot injury for some time now, but he looked to be taking some part of the action this week.

But Marcos Rojo was the biggest show-off in Manchester United training. The Argentine defender was showing off his ball-juggling skills in the session, hopefully none of which he will demonstrate against Chelsea.

Wayne Rooney, Radamel Falcao and Monday night hero Daley Blind were also all in action.
