Goals from Dimitar Berbatov and Wayne Rooney saw Manchester United overcome Blackburn 2-0 at Old Trafford.
Berbatov made the breakthrough with a neat volley in the 55th minute and Rooney sewed the points up two minutes from time.
United should have extended the scoreline but substitute Gabriel Obertan missed two sitters on his league debut.
