Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United team travel to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday to take on Arsenal in the first set of Premier League fixtures since the international break. United are currently in the midst of an injury crisis, with many of their first team players out of action for Saturday. The list of players that are out, or could potentially be out, is large. David De Gea, Daley Blind, Marcus Rojo, Rafael, Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Luke Shaw, Michael Carrick and Radamel Falcao are among the names that make the list.
The problem became worse following Argentina’s game against Portugal at Old Trafford. Manchester United’s best asset, Angel Di Maria, took a kick from Nani and now joins the list of players who might be out for the Arsenal clash. It’s worth remembering that Arsenal have their fair share of injuries as well, but unlike Manchester United, Arsenal still have their star man in Alexis Sánchez.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Angel Di Maria’s injury news:
So Shaw and Di Maria injured…I hate international breaks so much!

DiMaria injured by TEAMMATE Nani? Oh. I see why he did it. Trying to book himself a place in the UTD squad.

Don't think people should be too worried about Angel Di Maria being injured. He told Ole in Argentina that it was only a knock.

Why are people on here saying Shaw and Di Maria injured and out of the Arsenal game. Is that confirmed? No. Just doubtful #mufc
