Old Trafford, 28 SEPT: Morgan Amaltifano and Saido Berahino saw West Brom win at Old Trafford for the first time in 35 years as they beat Premier League champions Manchester United 2-1 on Saturday.
The Baggies, whose last triumph at Old Trafford was a 5-3 success in the old First Division in 1978, inflicted a third defeat in six league games on David Moyes’s United that left the hosts a lowly 12th in the table.
French midfielder Amaltifano, on loan from Marseille, opened the scoring with a fine solo effort just after the hour.
Wayne Rooney pulled the home side level with a free-kick but England Under-21 international Berahino scored the Baggies’ second goal to earn a well-deserved win.
United substitute Marouane Fellaini had an effort rightly ruled out for offside and the hosts, who have not scored from open play since the first day of the season, created few chances.
Also, the first managerial meeting between former colleagues Jose Mourinho and Andre Villas-Boas ended in stalemate as Chelsea drew 1-1 at Tottenham Hotspur.
Other scores: Aston Villa 3 – 2 Man City, Fulham 1 – 2 Cardiff, Hull 1 – 0 West Ham.
