United off to winning start

Published Add your comment

Dimitar Berbatov sent Manchester United on their way to a comfortable 3-0 win over Newcastle as the Red Devils began their Premier League campaign in style.

Berbatov took full advantage of a probing through-ball from Paul Scholes to break the Magpies defences in the 33rd minute.

The Bulgarian might have had more but once Darren Fletcher had doubled United's lead before the break, it was left to substitute Ryan Giggs to add the gloss with an excellent late volley.
