Manchester United’s title defence began with a draw at Old Trafford for the second consecutive season as they were held 1-1 by Newcastle United.

Darren Fletcher equalised Obafemi Martin’s free header and that seemed set to signal all 3 points for the home team. But despite pressure, they found Shay Given on top of his game.

Speaking after the match, Fletcher played down the significance of the dropped points, but admitted it was not a good enough performance in front of goal.
