Manchester United announce Goal of the Season nominees: Angel di Maria and Juan Mata’s stunning strikes among top four

Posted by

Manchester United are still playing some way off the standard expected under Louis van Gaal, yet the Premier League giants have produced some moments of magic this season.

Surprisingly for Red Devils fans, Angel di Maria – who has been hugely underwhelming since his blockbuster £59.7m switch from the Santiago Bernabeu – stars in all four contenders for goal of the season.

Angel di Maria vs Leicester City

The 5-3 loss to the Foxes is undoubtedly one of the worst results for Manchester United this season – and certainly the most embarrassing – but this moment of sublime skill from new signing Angel di Maria gave fans hope that he could be key in helping the club return to the European stage.

While this hasn’t been the case, with the Argentina international dropped from the starting XI after a series of underwhelming performances, this finish proves just how talented Di Maria is. With the ball under his feet, he pulled off an audacious lob over Kasper Schmeichel from close range.
