Louis van Gaal gives update on injures, says Di Maria will improve


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says only midfielder Michael Carrick is not available for tomorrow's game.

The Red Devils host Burnley on Wednesday night as they look to stay in the top four and the Dutchman says he will assess his players on Wednesday morning before taking a final decision on his starting eleven.

"Only Michael Carrick is injured," van Gaal told MUTV.

"Luke Shaw is of course suspended so I have to choose out of the rest. Yesterday I played five players of my selection in the second team [Under-21s] and they won against Chelsea.

"But I have to see how the players have recovered from the match against West Ham United - that was a tough game, we had to fight until the end so I have to look and see how they have recovered.

"We had a lot of injuries in the first half of the season and now they are recovered.

"I think they all need match rhythm in the second team before they can play in the first squad. Now we've made this structure it's becoming better because only Michael Carrick is injured so I think the procedure is a very good procedure."

Meanwhile, the Dutchman says he is convinced midfielder Angel di Maria will soon start showing his true potential after a below-par first half of the campaign.

"Di Maria has to adapt to the English rhythm of the game," he said.

"That's a high standard and the big difference with other countries. He shall do that. I'm convinced of it."
