With this morning's sport - The Preshaah

The top two from last season kick off their Premier League campaigns later.

Manchester United start at West Brom, while Chelsea begin at Stoke.

Two of the main title contenders recorded disappointing draws on the opening day.

Liverpool let a lead slip in finishing 1-1 with Sunderland, while Arsenal were reduced to ten men in their goalless draw at Newcastle.

QPR lost 4-0 at home to Bolton, while fellow newcomers Norwich finished 1-1 against Wigan.


Blackpool play their first competitive home game since their relegation from the Premier League today.

They host Peterborough in the Championship.

Today's other match sees Cardiff host Bristol City.

Three teams maintained their 100-percent starts to the second-tier campaign.

Southampton won 1-0 at Barnsley, while Brighton got past Portsmouth 1-0, and Derby triumphed 1-0 at Watford.

Ipswich slipped up, though, going down 1-0 at home to Hull, while Leicester were beaten 2-0 by Reading.

Leeds are still without a point after losing 1-0 to Middlesbrough, though West Ham got off the mark with a 1-0 victory over Doncaster.

Birmingham beat Coventry 1-0 in their derby, while Millwall saw off Steve McClaren's Nottingham Forest 2-0, and Crystal Palace beat Burnley 2-0.


Celtic remain the only team in the SPL with a 100-percent record.

They beat Dundee United 5-1, but they're not top of the table because of playing a game less than most of their rivals.

Motherwell are at the summit after their late 1-0 victory at St Mirren.

Rangers aren't too far behind after their 2-0 triumph at Inverness, while Hearts beat Aberdeen 3-0, and Dunfermline got past St Johnstone 1-0.

Today's game sees Kilmarnock host Hibernian.


England's cricketers can reflect on the fact that they're the best Test team in the world.

Their crushing victory over India at Edgbaston means they'll be top of the list when the rankings are next published.

Andrew Strauss' side took a 3-0 lead in the series, beating the tourists by an innings and 242 runs.


Wales should know today whether Gavin Henson will be fit enough to feature in the rugby union World Cup.

He suffered a suspected broken arm in their 19-9 warm-up victory over England.

The results of a scan should be known later.

In last night's action, Ireland were beaten 19-12 at the hands of France.


Only a point separates the top two going into today's rugby league Super League games.

Leaders Wigan host Salford, while second-placed Warrington have Wakefield.

It's Bradford against Hull KR in the other contest.


Spaniard Dani Pedrosa is on pole position for the first time this season at the Czech MotoGP later.

The Honda rider shares the front row with Yamaha's defending world champion Jorge (pron: HOR-GAY) Lorenzo.

Pedrosa's team-mate and current championship leader Casey Stoner will be third on the grid.
