Manchester United are hoping Argentina internationals Angel Di Maria and Marcos Rojo will be available for this weekend's game against Aston Villa.

The Red Devils travel to Villa Park hoping to extend their winning streak to seven matches and with it firm up whispers about a possible challenge for the Premier League title.

Their chances of taking all three points against the Midlands club will be greatly boosted if Di Maria makes his eagerly awaited return. The newly crowned Argentina player of the year has returned to training this week, potentially putting him in the frame to play a role in the 3pm kick-off on Saturday.

His international team-mate Marcos Rojo could also be available for the match. The defender was injured in training ahead of last weekend's 3-0 win over Liverpool and was unable to play a part in the game. Van Gaal was coy over the extent of the injury, leading to hopes he will be able to make a quick return.

Here, we take a look at all the Manchester United players with current fitness concerns.
