Gary Neville: Angel di Maria should start for Manchester United against Liverpool

Manchester United will face Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday.

Gary Neville has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Angel di Maria should start for Manchester United against Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

Argentina international winger Di Maria was suspended for last weekend’s Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur.

United did not miss the 2014 summer signing against Spurs at Old Trafford, though, as they eased to a 3-0 win.

With Di Maria now available for Sunday’s Premier League showdown against Liverpool at Anfield, manager Louis van Gaal has a big decision to make: whether he should start the former Real Madrid star or not.

Former United defender Neville believes that Di Maria should be included in the starting line-up, as he replied to a message on social networking site Twitter.

Interestingly, only on Monday, Neville suggested on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football that the 27-year-old should be only on the substitutes’ bench against Liverpool (click here to read more).

Whatever Neville’s opinion on Di Maria may be, the decision will be Van Gaal’s and Van Gaal’s only.

Di Maria has been in disappointing form in recent weeks, and the Dutchman could decide not to change a winning team to accommodate someone who has been misfiring for quite a while.

However, playing Juan Mata on the right yet again could be a mistake, as that is not the Spain international midfielder’s preferred position.
