The Angel Di Maria era at Manchester United begins at Turf Moor, as newly-promoted Burnley looks to steal its first Premier League points of the new campaign against Louis van Gaal’s Red Devils (Watch live at 7:45am ET on NBCSN and online via Live Extra).
Burnley and United have a heck of a history, and Burnley actually split the series with its rivals during their last Premier League go-round. But today’s task is a trickier one, and would say just as much against United as it would speak for Burnley.
Di Maria will work an attack with Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie. Something tells me things at Old Trafford are looking up.
Burnley: Heaton; Trippier, Duff, Shackell (c), Mee; Arfield, Jones, Marney, Taylor; Ings, Jutkiewicz
Subs: Gilks, Ward, Reid, Long, Wallace, Sordell, Barnes
Manchester United: De Gea, Jones, Evans, Blackett, Valencia, Young, Fletcher, Di Maria, Mata, Rooney, van Persie
Subs: Januzaj, Hernandez, Welbeck, James, M. Keane, Anderson, Amos
