Will Louis van Gaal's Manchester United be able to get three points on the board at the third time of asking in the Barclays Premier League?

BT Sport viewers will be able to find out as the Red Devils' trip to newly-promoted Burnley is broadcast live on the pay-TV service.

The match - which kicks off at 12:45 pm on Saturday August 30th - gives both sides the opportunity to register their first league win of the campaign.

While Manchester United have lost to Swansea City and drawn with Sunderland, Burnley have also struggled so far on their top-flight return, with defeats against Chelsea and Swansea leaving the Clarets pointless after two matches.

Ordinarily, Sean Dyche's men would fear any visiting Manchester United side, but they will be genuinely hopeful of at least a point in this lunchtime clash at Turf Moor.

United have been unimpressive in their outings so far in 2014-15, and look light years behind their local rivals Manchester City.

New signings appear to be on their way to Old Trafford before the transfer window shuts next week, but van Gaal has a lot of work to do to turn the club around.

BT Sport viewers can look forward to a host of other games at the weekend, starting with Augsburg v Borussia Dortmund from the Bundesliga and Marseille v Nice from France's Ligue 1.

Both games kick off at 7:30pm on Friday August 29th, on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 2 respectively.

Saturday highlights on BT Sport line-up include Schalke 04 v Bayern Munich at 5:30pm and Roma v Fiorentina from Italy's Serie A at 7:45pm.

On Sunday, viewers can look forward to seeing the Scottish champions Celtic in action away at Dundee, in a game to be broadcast live at 12:30pm on BT Sport 1.

Later in the day, BT Sport subscribers can watch AC Milan v Lazio (5pm), Benfica v Sporting Lisbon (7pm) and PSG v St Etienne (8pm) amongst other games.
