A rather easy fixture for Manchester United to go back on track in the Premier League. Surprisingly enough, United have only dropped two points at home, against West Bromwich Albion with a 2-2 draw. However, Bolton have only managed to win against the Red Devils two times in eighteen meetings. Though Bolton have scored six goals in their last two matches, 3-2 vs. Aston villa at home and 3-2 against Birmingham City in the FA Cup. United, meanwhile, have lost thier two last premier league games i.e against Chelsea and Liverpool. They have however won against Marseille in the Champions League through a brace by Hernandez.
Sir Alex Ferguson will start his 5 game touchline ban when Bolton visit OT. Amazingly, there have been 29 goals scored in this fixture in the last 10 meetings. Moreover, Javier Hernandez (Chicharito) has scored 10 times out of 14 shots this season for Man United. Last time Bolton won was a mere victory at the Reebok Stadium courtesy of a Nicholas Anelka strike. Since then United have remained unbeaten against the Wanderers.
Prediction: It will be a game filled with goals as always. But the hosts will surely edge it as the partnership of Rooney and Hernandez upfront is looking devastating. Full Time score: Manchester United 3-1 Bolton Wanderers.
