Fletcher - or perhaps Campbell - settle the argument

Manchester United has beaten Portsmouth 1-0 away in English football's Premier League.

It's the champions' first win, following an opening 1-1 home draw with Newcastle.

Darren Fletcher's first-half goal, sliding in from a Patrice Evra cross, proved the winner for United - though there's some suspicion it was an own goal by Portsmouth defender Sol Campbell.

For FA Cup holders Portsmouth, defeat continued their unhappy start to the season after losing the Community Shield to United on penalties and their league opener 4-0 at Chelsea.
