Gary Lineker presents all the goals and highlights from the day's Barclays Premier League matches. Champions Manchester United made the long trip south to face Portsmouth at Fratton Park. Pompey were FA Cup winners just 18 months ago - but financial problems have seen that side dismantled, with key players like Jermain Defoe, Glen Johnson and Lassana Diarra sold to balance the books. A host of replacements arrived on the cheap but the new faces have taken time to settle, with Paul Hart's side making a slow start to the season. The Red Devils have not been at their best either so far, with the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo depriving them of their main goal threat. But Sir Alex Ferguson's men are past masters of grinding out results, and few would bet against them taking their title challenge to the wire. Manchester City's expensively-assembled side would have been expected to take maximum points against Hull, while Aston Villa hosted Tottenham, with both sides keen to press their claims for a top-four finish. Sunderland boss Steve Bruce returned to Wigan, the club he left in the summer. West Ham will have been hoping to pick up a win against Burnley, who have struggled away from Turf Moor. Elsewhere, Blackburn hosted Stoke and Fulham met Bolton.
