Angel Di Maria Manchester UnitedSTAR MAN
Angel Di Maria
Despite only arriving three months ago, Angel Di Maria is already a fan favourite among Manchester United fans. The £59.7million forward has already scored three goals and racked up five assists this season. With lethal goalscorers Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney looking to get on the end of his crosses, Arsenal will need to be at their best defensively to stop him adding to an already impressive tally.
