Angel di Maria has talked up the importance of Manchester United’s forthcoming clashes with their top-four rivals.

United travel to Liverpool on Sunday afternoon looking for a victory to take a step closer to securing a top-four finish and a route into next season’s Champions League.

We’ve known that everything would be at stake over this final period of the season

The showdown at Anfield is promptly followed by games against Manchester City and Chelsea next month, before a home clash with Arsenal in May.

And Di Maria admits that “everything is at stake” for Louis van Gaal’s side as they bid to finish in the top four in the Dutchman’s first campaign in charge at Old Trafford.

“We are all aware that a number of big games are just around the corner, and the season will be decided by these fixtures,” Di Maria told United Review.

“We know all about these upcoming games and we have been thinking and talking about them for quite some time now. We’ve known that everything would be at stake over this final period of the season.

“Everyone at the club is 100 per cent confident, we know we want to get back into the Champions League and that we want to be fighting it out. We’ll battle hard right to the end of the season. From what I know of the club, United always fight right to the end and that’s what we’re going to do.”

Di Maria has failed to find consistent form for the Red Devils this season since his £59.7m transfer to Old Trafford from Real Madrid last summer.

He has scored three Premier League goals and notched up eight assists but has not found the net since the 2-0 win over Yeovil in January.
