Burn­ley 0 Man­chester Uni­ted 0, Turf Moor, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue, Au­gust 30, 2014. Man­chester Uni­ted could on­ly man­age a goal­less draw ag­ainst Burn­ley at Turf Moor. Louis van Gaal han­ded An­gel Di Mar­ia his Pre­miership de­but in the ga­me, but the for­mer Re­al Mad­rid play­er was ev­entually re­placed by Oli­veira An­der­son in the 70th min­ute of the match.

Man­chester Uni­ted once ag­ain failed to win as they were held to a dis­ap­point­ing 0-0 draw by Pre­mier Lea­gue new­comers Burn­ley.  The Old Traf­ford club had sev­er­al de­cent op­por­tun­it­ies dur­ing the ga­me and should have sco­red on at least two or three oc­ca­sions, but The Reds were un­able to find the back of the net and, as a con­sequence, they now had on­ly two points from three mat­ches played and were sit­ting 14th in the Pre­mier Lea­gue stand­ings. But des­pite los­ing two points ag­ainst The Clarets, re­cently hired Man­chester Uni­ted boss Louis van Gaal said af­ter the goal­less draw at Turf Moor that his te­am were ma­king pro­gress. Louis van Gaal: “The pro­gress is there, but you have to win. A club like Man­chester Uni­ted have to win. We have two points from nine and that´s dis­ap­point­ing.” Burn­ley Te­am: Tom Hea­ton, Ben Mee, Ja­son Shack­ell, Kier­an Trip­pi­er, Mi­chael Duff, Mat­thew Tay­lor, Scott Ar­field, Da­vid Jones, Dean Mar­ney, Dan­ny Ings, Lu­kas Jutkiewicz.
