Beasley, Dempsey both score for their club teams

LONDON -- Arsenal ended Sven-Goran Eriksson's perfect start as Manchester City manager with a 1-0 victory in the Premier league on an 80th-minute goal by Cesc Fabregas.

Chelsea beat Portsmouth 1-0 on Frank Lampard's 31st-minute goal to go to the top of the league. Chelsea now has 10 points and City is second with nine.

Arsenal could have won by a bigger margin against the team now run by the former England coach, but a penalty kick by Robin van Persie was saved by Man City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

U.S. goalkeeper Kasey Keller made his debut for Fulham and American teammate Clint Dempsey scored the opening goal against Aston Villa. But Fulham lost 2-1 and finished with 10 men after Chris Baird was sent off for two yellow cards.

Ashley Young evened the score for Villa in the 51st minute, with a deflection off Fulham defender Zat Knight, and substitute Shaun Maloney had a 90th-minute winner.

Fulham also fielded U.S. defender Carlos Bocanegra. Villa manager Martin O'Neill watched the second half from the stands after an argument with referee Steve Bennett.

U.S. winger Eddie Lewis made his Derby debut after moving to the club from League One club Leeds on Monday. But his team lost 2-1 to Birmingham on two goals from Cameron Jerome.

Liverpool defeated Sunderland with debut Premier League goals from Mohamed Sissoko and Andriy Voronin.

Italy
ROME -- Lazio and Torino played to a 2-2 tie as the Italian league opened with a game played in almost 104-degree heat.

Goran Pandev and Tommaso Rocchi scored for Lazio and Alessandro Rosina and Tommaso Vailatti netted for Torino at Stadio Olimpico. Torino ended with 10 men after Gianluca Comotto picked up his second yellow card in the 84th.

On Sunday, defending Serie A champion Inter Milan faces Udinese at San Siro, European champion AC Milan opens at newly promoted Genoa and Italian supercup winner AS Roma visits Palermo.

Scotland
GLASGOW, Scotland -- DaMarcus Beasley scored his first Scottish Premier League goal for the unbeaten Rangers in a 2-1 victory over Kilmarnock.

Rangers have 12 points and Celtic stayed in second with 10 after a 5-0 rout of Hearts.

Beasley scored in the 52nd minute, chasing down a loose ball in the box to score from six yards. Danny Invincibile tied it for Kilmarnock in the 61st minute and Jean-Claude Darcheville scored the winner for Rangers in the 76th, netting a rebound after a shot from Beasley was blocked.

"I thought DaMarcus Beasley did very well in the game today and so did Jean-Claude when he came on," Rangers manager Walter Smith said.

Germany
BERLIN -- Bayern Munich is off to its best Bundesliga start after routing Hannover 96 3-0 behind Luca Toni's third goal of the season.

The Italian forward, the team's top scorer, collected Bastian Schweinsteiger's pass and sent a rising shot inside the left post in the 27th minute. Toni later hobbled off the field with a suspected right thigh strain.

Mark van Bommel added a long shot in the 69th minute and Hamit Altintop completed a solo run through several defenders for the third goal in the 85th. Hannover was reduced to 10 men when Altin Lala was ejected at the half for fouling Ze Roberto.

Bayern moved two points clear of Arminia Bielefeld and VfL Bochum. The club rebuilt its squad in the offseason and has a 3-0 record and 10-0 goal difference.

Two other title hopefuls picked up their first wins of the season. VfL Stuttgart beat MSV Duisburg and Werder Bremen edged FC Nuremberg, both 1-0.

Bayer Leverkusen ended its dubious distinction as the only scoreless team with a 3-0 win against Karlsruher SC. Dortmund also beat Energie Cottbus 3-0 and Bielefeld downed Hertha Berlin 2-0 to take second place. On Friday, Bochum edged Hamburg 2-1.

France
PARIS -- Julien Rodriguez and Mamadou Niang scored a goal each for Marseille, which beat Caen 2-1 for its first victory of the season in the French league.

Marseille, considered a serious challenger to defending champion Lyon, gained some breathing room after opening the season with three draws and a loss.

Portugal
LISBON, Portugal -- Benfica coach Jose Antonio Camacho made his return the Portuguese league, with his team held to a scoreless tie by Guimaraes. Camacho, who coached Benfica from 2002-04, replaced Fernando Santos on Tuesday after only two games.

U.S. teenage star Freddy Adu will have to wait to make his league debut after sitting on the substitutes bench for the second straight week.

In Sunday's key game, Sporting Lisbon plays at FC Porto.
