For the second year running, Manchester United opened their account with a disappointing draw at home. Last year it was a goalless draw with Reading and now a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.
Obafemi Martins opened the scoring before Darren Fletcher's instant reply midway through the first half but despite exerting pressure, they were unable to capitalise.
Sir Alex Ferguson gave his thoughts on the match and admitted it was a huge blow to lose Carlos Tevez prior to kick off, with the Argentine forward having to return home following a family berreavment.
