United 2 - 1 Bolton

Neville Rio Evans Evra(O'Shea)
Valencia Anderson(Scholes) Carrick Giggs
Berbatov Owen(Welbeck)

Whoa that was a close one! United scored after a few minutes thanks to an own goal by Knight and then Valencia scored his first competitive goal for United after a neat one-two with Neville. However this comfortable 2 goal lead was seriously threatened by Bolton who managed to score late in the second half and could have easily equalised in the final moments of the match.

United were poor once again and I don't think we can keep on winning with such a form. Rooney was badly missed and at the back we looked terrible especially when defending crosses. Thankfully the return of VDS made me feel more comfortable whenever a ball was swung from the sides. I liked Berbatov's contribution, he could have scored two beauties and managed to get his team mates in ideal positions, however, Owen's performance was poor. He looked slow and spurned a couple of good chances. Anderson and Carrick played quite well while Giggs and Valencia both had their ups and downs.

United are back on top of the league though! Chelsea's loss to Villa means we are now a point clear off the Blues. Our next match is away to CSKA. I don't really know what to expect but I hope United improve!
