West Brom earned their first point of the season in a goalless draw at Bolton, but left the Reebok Stadium with thoughts of what might have been.
Ishmael Miller missed two terrific chances to give West Brom victory.
He hit wide from seven yards with only Jussi Jaaskelainen to beat, then headed weakly straight at the goalkeeper.
Bolton lacked the creative flair of their opponents, and had their best hope of a goal – a Mustapha Riga free-kick – saved by Scott Carson.
In the dying minutes, the home team poured forward, and Kevin Davies had two goals disallowed for off-side.

The Magpies went ahead when James Milner linked up well with summer signing Jonas Gutierrez in the 21st minute before firing in a dangerous low cross which Scott Dann could only turn beyond his own goalkeeper with Charles N’Zogbia closing in.
And seven minutes before the interval, Milner made it 2-0 when his curling cross towards the on-rushing Geremi at the far post eluded Andy Marshall and found the back of the net.
Clinton Morrison’s stunning curled finish reduced the arrears just before the interval, before Dann took the game into extra time with a header from Aron Gunnarsson’s monster throw as the clock ticked down.
However, it was the Magpies who regained the initiative when Owen beat the offside trap in the 97th minute to collect Jose Enrique’s long ball and beat Marshall with a cool finish.

Manchester United secured their first Premier League win of the season with a majestic performance as they outclassed a toilsome Portsmouth side to win 1-0 at Fratton Park.
The goal came just after the half hour mark. Slick one touch passing found Tevez with time and space to pick out the marauding Evra in behind hopelessly exposed Papa Bouba Diop; late arrival to the box Darren Fletcher met Evra’s centre and attempted an impish flick goal-wards which took a nick off of Campbell and evaded the despairing dive of David James

Manchester City secured their first Premier League win of the season with a comfortable 3-0 home win over 10-man West Ham.Daniel Sturridge and Elano, twice, struck after the break to make the Hammers pay for a six-minute period of indiscipline in the first half which saw Mark Noble dismissed for two bookable offences.
The win was Mark Hughes’s first in the Premier League as City manager and the manner of victory did much to help ease memories of their opening day defeat to Aston Villa.ALL goals below if you wait a few mins all hightlights will load depends on internet speed thanks for looking do rate us under the contact section
