Burnley vs Manchester United: Individual Player Statistics

If anything, Manchester United look more rigid and more structured under Louis Van Gaal than they did during the last days of David Moyes.Ā  Whilst thereā€™s certainly reason to question the individual performances of certain players, it really just appears as if this side is struggling to understand the system around them - or at least, they donā€™t yet feel comfortable enough within it to use it to their advantage.

Here are the statistics from Turf Moor:

- Jonny Evans had 105 touches of the ball, the most in the game.

- Darren Fletcher attempted (12) and completed (11) more long-passes than any other player.
