Game: Burnley – Manchester United
Date: 30 August, Saturay, 2014 year
Start time: 13:45 CET.
Burnley host Manchester United in a match of the 3rd round in the English Premier League match will be played at Turf Moor Stadium in Burnley on August 30th at 13:45 CET.
Team of Burnley is with three consecutive losses in three meetings this season. In the first round the team lost by 1:3 from Chelsea. Burnley loss in the match against Swansea last Saturday (0: 1) and a loss with the same result in the League Cup against Sheffield Wednesday three days later. After two league rounds they occupy the 19th place with zero points. Team manager Sean Dyche can not rely solely on striker Sam Vokes, who is injured.
Louis Van Gaal also can not enjoy the performance so far in the league. After two PL rounds van Gaal’s teams occupies the 13th place in the table having only one point. “The Red Devils” started the season with a home defeat by Swansea 1: 2, and in the second round ended in a draw 1: 1 away to Sunderland. During the week, however, expected the Dutch manager of Manchester United to record their first win at the helm. This did not happen and FC Milton Keynes Dons “The Red Devils” with 4: 0 and eliminate them even in the second round of the competition. Team manager L. van Gaal will have to do in this game to many of his players – M. Fellaini, J. Lingard, Anderson, Ander Herrera, M. Carrick, L. Shaw.
A few days ago Manchester United signed with Argentine star Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid. The first chance for Di Maria to show his class will likely come against Burnley. the only question is whether van Gaal will rely on him in the lineup.
Both teams are not very good at scoring this season, but United have very good individual players, who know how to score. So I expect “The Red Devils” to reach the first win of the season.
