United kicked off the defence of the Barclays Premier League title with a 2-1 win at West Brom.

In a match that mirrored last season's tussle at The Hawthorns, Wayne Rooney gave the Reds an early lead. However, Roy Hodgson's hosts battled back with a strike from debutant Shane Long before the interval.

With time running out, Ashley Young's cross was turned into his own net by Steven Reid for the winner.
