Danny Simpson believes Angel Di Maria is the biggest threat to Leicester City ahead of Manchester United’s trip to the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

Di Maria, who signed for a British transfer record of £59.7m, scored and assisted in United’s 4-0 win against Simpson’s former club Queens Park Rangers – their first victory this season.

Simpson, who began his career with the Red Devils, lauded the winger as world-class and admitted he will face a tough task if selected ahead of teammate Ritchie De Laet.

Simpson wrote on Sportlobster.com: “I don’t know who will be facing Angel Di Maria, as I obviously don’t know the starting line-up yet.

“He is definitely one to watch and one of many of the Manchester United players who are world class.”

However, the 27-year-old, who joined the Foxes in the summer transfer window, stressed Leicester have their own Argentine to shock Louis Van Gaal’s team.

He added: “We have a great defence and an in-form striker in Leonardo Ulloa. He is a handful for defenders and already he’s scored three goals for the club.

“His work-rate is incredible, he leads the line brilliantly and his aerial ability and link-up play have been top-notch.”
