Arsenal Legend Winterburn FA Cup Tie At Man Utd Made For Angel di Maria

Angel di Maria 3

Reports are out claiming that Arsenal legend Nigel Winterburn believes Monday’s FA Cup tie at Manchester United is made for Angel di Maria.

Winterburn says the Argentine international could be the difference on the night.

“I always look out for players who have the necessary class and quality to disturb the back four, which means good movement and the willingness to make runs in behind defenders,” Winterburn explained to

“I think if you play in front of your opponents too much, they can organise and frustrate you. That’s why I think players like Angel Di Maria can make the difference. He can carry the ball on his own. Players like him have the ability to run with the ball at speed and pick a pass.

“Obviously you’re expecting to get a good team performance anyway, but you still need your real top players to give you that little bit extra. Your creative players have to turn up for the big games. I think the team whose creative players do that will win the game.”
