Forward Johann Smith, 19, made his English Premier League debut, coming in with five minutes left as his Bolton club fell, 4-0, to Manchester United.

Former U.S. youth national team goalkeeper Quentin Westberg, 20, made his French First Division debut in a 3-1 win over St. Etienne. Westberg replaced injured starter Ronan Le Crom. Westberg, the son of an American father and French mother, has lived in France most of his life.

In Germany, Kasey Keller was nutmegged on one of two goals he gave up in Borussia Moenchenglabach's 2-0 home loss to Bayer Leverkusen. Forward Conor Casey returned from a long injury absence, coming off the bench in Mainz's 6-1 loss to Werder Bremen.

In England, defender Jonathan Spector got his third start of the season helped West Ham win its second game of the season with a 2-1 victory over Blackburn, which had Brad Friedel in goal.

In the English second tier, struggling Leeds won on the debut of new coach Dennis Wise, who had announced he wanted the team to get nasty, and moved out of the relegation zone. Eddie Lewis was yellow-carded during his 90 minutes in the 2-0 win over Southend.

DaMarcus Beasley and Claudio Reyna hope to return from injury for Manchester City, which meets Middlesbrough on Monday (TV: Fox Soccer Channel, live, 3pm ET.) Man City has just two wins this season.
