United suffered a shock defeat at home to Swansea City on Saturday in Louis van Gaal's first match as a Premier League manager.

The Dutch coach was forced to hand a debut to 20-year-old Tyler Blackett, who was partially to blame for Gylfi Sigurdsson's winner.

Van Gaal also abandoned the 3-5-2 formation that took the Netherlands to the World Cup semi-final at half-time, in an attempt to invigorate his stuttering side.
