It seems like such an obvious statement when the Red Devils shelled out in and around £60million for the then-Real Madrid player. However, after three assists and three goals in his opening five games, the Argentina international is close to becoming the first name on Louis van Gaal’s team-sheet.
I must admit Di Maria one of the best signing in Premier League

di maria is such a problem. uniteds best signing this season so far

If Di Maria and Falcao aren’t the two best signing for @ManUtd, I don’t know what will. Single handedly bringing life back too United

Another poor game for Everton’s record signing for Chelsea will certainly raise questions marks over the £28million Roberto Martinez felt the Belgium international was worth.
Also, Lukaku is quite rubbish.

Lukaku is rubbish. Specially for a 28m striker

Lukaku is the most average-looking striker against top teams.

Lukaku is another overrated average player

When the ref pointed to the spot after Luke Shaw fouled Tony Hibbert, many expected Leighton Baines to step up and make it 15 goals from 15 Premier League penalties. However, David de Gea denied the England international, much to the shock of the footballing world.
Is this match fixed? Baines doesn’t miss penalties
— Daniel Young (@youngDan18) October 5, 2014
Baines had converted 14 consecutive penalties before that miss. #EFC

Match of the Day will probably stick a graphic of the high wind speed & find a divot near the penalty spot to excuse that Baines miss.
