Patrik Berger celebrates what proved to be the winner as Pompey started life in the Premiership with a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa.

Teddy Sheringham grabbed the opener at Fratton Park on August 16, 2003, before Berger doubled the Blues’ advantage.

And although Gareth Barry pulled a goal back late on, the hosts held on for three welcome points upon their return to the top flight.
