Brown challenges with Ronaldo
Well that's not quite how I expected us to start the season.

Saha, Ian Pearce o.g., Rooney (2) and Ronaldo helped Man Utd to a comfortable victory.

Fulham's goal came when a Helguson shot took a wicked deflection off Rio Ferdinand.

The result has promted William Hills to make Chris Coleman 2/1 favourite to be the first Premuiership managerial casualty.

'It is very early days, but Coleman was under pressure last season and his boss is not noted for his patience when things are going wrong' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
