The Red Devils  are looking to register their first win of the season when they come up against Burnley  on Saturday night (AEST).

Louis Van Gaal’s reign as Manchester United manager hasn’t gone to plan thus far. The Red Devils lost on the opening day to Swansea, drew to Sunderland last week, before slumping to an embarrassing 4-0 defeat in the Capital One Cup to League One outfit Milton Keynes Dons. The string of poor results has prompted club executives to open the cheque book mid-week, smashing the British transfer record to lure midfielder Angel Di Maria to the club from Real Madrid. He is expected to make his debut on Saturday, alongside fellow Argentinian Marcos Rojo, who signed from Sporting Lisbon less than a fortnight ago.

Newly promoted Burnley are one of the three sides in the EPL to remain pointless after the first two rounds. An opening day defeat to Chelsea was followed with a loss in Wales to Swansea, however the Clarets have shown promising signs in both matches. Scottish midfielder Scott Arfield  netted the first goal of the match in Burnley’s loss to Chelsea in Round 1, and you’re certainly getting great value for him to repeat the dose on Saturday night.

If United are any chance of competing at the top of the table, they need to win matches like these. Van Gaal’s men have already dropped points to two mediocre sides this campaign, and punters are confident it won’t be a third with a couple of big bets coming in for the Red Devils to win by two or more goals .
