Burnley 0 Manchester Utd 0
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.
