Next Match its Manchester United vs Manchester City. Who will win?

United started their quest to regain the European crown with a 1-0 victory over Besiktas, with Paul Scholes heading the only goal 13 minutes from time.

However, the success was achieved without Ferdinand, who was forced to sit out a tight match in Istanbul with a groin injury.

The England international, who only returned from a calf injury in last weekend's 3-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur, is now facing a race against time to be fit for the visit of Manchester City on Sunday.

Manchester United defeats Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur 1-3 Manchester United
Goals by Ryan Giggs, Anderson and Rooney.

Manchester United brought Tottenham Hotspur's unbeaten start to an end after coming back from behind.

United were a goal down after a minute and reduced to 10 men but still recorded victory in a pulsating match at White Hart Lane that ended Tottenham's 100 per cent start to the Barclays Premier League season.

Jermain Defoe's acrobatic strike opened the scoring but United have a history of comebacks against Spurs - 5-2 last season and 5-3 eight years ago - and they levelled through Ryan Giggs' free-kick.

Anderson drilled home before the break, and despite playing the last half an hour without Paul Scholes, Wayne Rooney sealed victory with a cool finish before the end.
