Manchester United Pulled off 2-0 Victory over Bolton Wanderers

Manchester United escaped with three points against Bolton Wanderers thanks to a controversial penalty awarded to United. With the 2-0 home victory, the defending champions are now in the 8th position with 8 points from five outings. Manchester United opened scoring thanks to a penalty awarded by referee Rob Styles. However, television reply showed clearly that Jlloyd Samuel did not have an illegal challenge on Cristiano Ronaldo who later converted the penalty successfully to put Manchester United ahead in the match.

Bolton looked confident until conceding the first goal. However, following the first goal, they took the back seat and looked fragile. So, poor referring must be an issue in this regard. Manchester Untied got the second goal when Wayne Rooney’s curled shot found Bolton net following Ronaldo’s back-click. So, Bolton fans can claim that if the penalty was not awarded against them, the result could have been something different.

Well, having said that, Manchester Untied well-deserved three points from the match as they were better in each and every position in the field. Manchester United dominated all through the match with Ronaldo, Dimitar Berbatov keeping the Bolton defense always busy. With this defeat, Bolton Wanderers went down to 17th position in the point table with only 4 points from 6 matches.
