premimglrg Rooney’s first-half goal was enough for Manchester United to make a winning start to their title defence.

The England striker headed Nani’s left-wing cross against the post before tapping in the rebound .

Birmingham’s debutant keeper Joe Hart denied Rooney twice and sub while Dimitar Berbatov had a header cleared off the line, as did Birmingham defender Franck Queudrue.Owen had a clear opportunity to score at the end but it was not to be for him.Good start for united.

Liverpool started the season with a defeat at spurs. Sebastien Bassong marked his debut with the winner as Tottenham repeated last season’s 2-1 success against Liverpool.

Spurs took the lead through Benoit Assou-Ekotto’s  brillant long range hit before Steven Gerrard levelled from the spot after great work from Glen Johnson.

But Bassong had the last say as he headed past Jose Reina who had denied Robbie Keane, Wilson Palacios and Peter Crouch.A great start for spurs who can only build on this as for rafa he will have some thinking to do.Sammy lee was sent off towards the end of the match as liverpool had to penalty shouts.

Tottenham will no doubt go into their away game against Hull in confident mood
