Angel Di Maria will return to the Manchester United starting lineup this weekend for the first time since recovering from injury.

The Daily Star reports that the Argentine midfielder is poised to make his first start in more than seven weeks when Manchester United take on Southampton at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Di Maria made his comeback against Yeovil Town in the FA Cup third round last weekend, scoring in the last minute to seal a 2-0 win and progression to the next round. United will face Cambridge in the fourth round.

A combination of hamstring and pelvis injuries have conspired to keep Di Maria out of action since late November, barring a brief return against Aston Villa, when he limped out of the home match against Hull City at Old Trafford in the first half.

A pelvic injury in training in late December delayed his return until last weekend, and he should be good to go for the visit of the Saints this Sunday.

Saints threat

Ronald Koeman’s side are just one place below Manchester United in the Premier League table, and will be looking to put pressure on their more illustrious rival, who are now beginning to get back to full strength.

In the reverse fixture, United stole three points off the Saints as two Robin Van Persie goals were enough to take a 2-1 win, despite Koeman’s side dominating much of the game.
