Manchester United: De Gea; McNair, Jones, Evans, Rojo; Blind; Di Maria, Rooney; Januzaj; van Persie, Falcao
Subs: Valdes, Smalling, Valencia, Fellaini, Herrera, Mata, Wilson
Van Gaal has instead chosen to play Adnan Januzaj and Angel di Maria on the wings in what looks like a 4-4-2 diamond formation.
Wayne Rooney continues to be employed in midfield but starts slightly higher up behind Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao.
United simply cannot afford to slip up against Burnley if they are to achieve their aim of qualifying for the Champions League next season.
Van Gaal’s side will need to be quick out of the blocks in order to put their opponents under pressure immediately. Anything less than three points at home would be a failure for United.
