Manchester United vs Burnley Team News & Possible Starting Lineups:

A horrible night in the capital one cup game against MK Dons has put extra pressure on Manchester United to finaly win their first competitive game of the season and their next assignment is an away tie against Burnley FC in premier league come saturday afternoon.

Injuries: Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Michael Carrick

Louis Van Gaal will surely slot Di Maria right into the starting lineup for the game against Burnley, It will be interesting to see whether Rooney and Van Persie will both start or one of them might benched for this game. United have big worries as far as central midfield role is concerned as Michael Carrick is still out injured, while new summer signing Ander Herrare is also unavailable alongside Marouane Fellaini.

So Van Gaal has his work cut out to pick the lineup and how do he slot Di Maria in this 3-5-2 system is remain to be seen and Marcos Rojo is certainly set to start in 3 man defense. here is my predicted lineup for the upcoming game this week.

Match Predictions:

Burnley are a very hard working unit and they are playing at home in a game which they will be feeling alot more confident after watching United got Humiliated against MK Dons the other night. I have a feeling they might give it a real go and will put United under pressure but I can see United getting goals in this match and Di Maria might prove to be a real handful on his premier league debut.
