Manchester United have received a major boost ahead of their clash against Chelsea on Sunday.

According to the Mail, Angel di Maria is reportedly set to be available for the clash against the league leaders as the injury he suffered against West Bromwich Albion on Monday night was minor.

The Argentine winger, who has been in impressive form and by far the best player for United this season limped off in the second half of the game against the Baggies. There were fears that he had injured his thigh, as he was seen holding an ice-pack to his leg while on the bench.

However, a source close to Old Trafford has revealed that it was a minor issue and that he should be available for the crucial Premier League game on Sunday.

"It was just a kick," an Old Trafford source is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

The report also claims that, Di Maria was at United's training complex at Carrington on Wednesday doing some light training and undergoing treatment.

The former Real Madrid star has been the pick of Louis van Gaal's summer signings and will be a vital player in the crucial fixtures coming up for the Red Devils.

Meanwhile, United defender Rafael is looking forward to the Chelsea game and is hoping they can take advantage of playing at Old Trafford when they take on the Blues.

"Everyone is beatable. We have to do our best, of course. They are playing well. We're playing at Old Trafford though and we've been getting results there so they are definitely beatable," Rafael told United's official site.

The Brazilian defender feels that they can get a result against the league leaders since the Red Devils have been playing well at home and believes that a good result on Sunday will be a big boost for the team going forward in the season.

"I think so – I feel that, we've been getting results here and have played some good football."

"Football is about results and, when you don't play well and draw, like on Monday night, of course everyone will speak. But hopefully we can play well against Chelsea and, if we get the result, it would be very positive for us and the whole team," the United defender added.
