Manchester United 3 Bolton Wanderers 0

Match corresponding to the Premier League and played at Old Trafford.

Paul Scholes made his second home debut, and true to the script scored the first of United’s three goals. Lindegaard kept goal once again and he wasn’t really tested as United dominated the match from the kick off. Bolton proved that they are a poor team and no manner of screaming and yelling by Owen Coyle is going to improve the quality shown by his players. One of those players, Zat Knight, fouled Danny Welbeck in the box and surprisingly was not sent off as Welbeck was sure to shoot and score. Rooney stepped up and shot hard and to the left but the Bolton goalkeeper pulled off an excellent save and unlike at City during the cup tie the rebound went wide. Cue United dominating the match but unable to score. Bolton for their part showed a total lack of ability to captialize on thier minimal chances. Scholes, however, was on hand one minute before half time to score United’s first. The second half started where the first left off. United dominant but not having the cut of the green in front of goal. That was until Welbeck poked in a second, which resulted in an injury. Carrick then placed a beautiful shot beyond the Bolton keeper who was easily their man of the match. With Spurs being held to a draw at White Hart Lane United are now level at the top of the league with City that play against Wigan Athletic on Monday.
