Team News: Angel di Maria starts for Manchester United

Angel di Maria starts as Manchester United host Arsenal in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup this evening.

Angel di Maria has been selected in the Manchester United XI for tonight's FA Cup quarter-final against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

It had been claimed that the Argentine would miss out following a poor run of form, but he starts, while Luke Shaw comes into the team in place of the suspended Jonny Evans.

Radamel Falcao and Juan Mata remain on what is a strong United bench, while they have been joined by Rafael, who has been in the shadows for much of this season.

For Arsenal, Danny Welbeck will seemingly lead the line against his former club, with Olivier Giroud dropping to the bench. There are also spots in the team for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, with Arsene Wenger selecting an attacking XI.

Francis Coquelin will start in central midfield, while Wojciech Szczesny replaces David Ospina between the sticks for the visitors.


UNITED: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Rojo, Shaw; Blind, Herrera; Di Maria, Fellaini, Young; Rooney

ARSENAL: Szczesny; Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Coquelin, Cazorla; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Alexis; Welbeck
