'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bolton 0 United 5

The goals just keep flowing and we`re top of the league!

Team News - Sir Alex Ferguson made two changes to the side that thrashed Arsenal last time out. Javier Hernandez replaced hamstring victim Danny Welbeck whilst Chris Smalling dropped to the bench to be replaced by Rio Ferdinand. Despite speculation beforehand, David de Gea did keep his place between the sticks.

United - De Gea, Evra, Ferdinand, Jones, Evans, Anderson, Nnai, Young, Cleverley, Rooney, Hernandez

Subs - Lindegaard, Smalling, Fabio, Giggs, Park, Carrick, Berbatov.

United got off to a great start; going into the lead with five minutes on the clock when Javier Hernandez scored his first of the season. The goal came with United down to ten men after Cleverley had left the pitch to receive treatment after an ugly challenge from Kevin Davies, with the Mexican tucking away, neatly, a fine cross from Nani.

Bolton 0 United 1 (Hernandez - 05 minutes)

Bolton responded well and Wayne Rooney, of all people, was on hand to clear a shot from the former United player, Chris Eagles off the line. As for Cleverley, his game was run and he was replaced by Michael Carrick.

Kevin Davies, after a robust start, received a yellow card for a poor tackle on Evra, we`re reliably informed it being the 100th of his career.

Bolton, trying to get back on level terms, saw De Gea push away a shot from Klasnic, from distance. Mark Davies joined his namesake in the book for a foul on Nani.

United, looking dangerous every time they poured forward; were soon to double their lead when Wayne Rooney made it seven goals in seven games against Bolton when he expertly converted, from close range, a cross from Phil Jones.

Bolton 0 United 2 (Rooney - 20 minutes)

Rooney got his second of the game. Once again it was a tap-in with the credit going to Phil Jones after he`d almost scored a superb solo goal but had been denied by a block by the keeper.

Bolton 0 United 3 (Rooney - 25 minutes)

Hernandez thought he`d made it 4-0 but it was ruled out for a marginal offside decision. The relentless assault continued and a cross from Ashley Young saw a header from Hernandez flash wide and just before half time Nani crashed a shot into the side-netting.

Half Time - Bolton 0 United 3

Our hosts started the second half well with Klasnic forcing a save out of De Gea diving to his left. Meanwhile, the Bolton Keeper, Jaaskelainen went through a dodgy patch soiling a free kick from Nani and flapping at a corner.

But he redeemed himself by superbly stopping a swinging free-kick from Anderson. Jaaskelainen then sinned again, completely misjudging a long ball up-field from De Gea he looked relieved to see Knight clear the resulting shot from Hernandez off the line.

Just before the hour mark though United made it four when Hernandez claimed his second goal of the game; the goal coming after some great skills form Nani left the Mexican with the simple job of turning it in from just outside the six yard box.

Bolton 0 United 4 (Hernandez - 59 minutes)

The home support almost had a goal to celebrate soon after when Reo-Coker rattled the cross bar. Just past the hour mark Sir Alex brought on Smalling for the injured Evans whilst Giggs replaced Young.

Halfway through the second half United made it 5-0 when Rooney made it back-to-back Premier League hat-tricks when he finished off a superb move conducted by Giggs with a great finish.

Bolton 0 United 5 (Rooney - 67 minutes)

United almost made it six immediately after when Rooney produced some magic to put a cross in for Hernandez but the Mexican couldn`t quite stretch enough to get his third on the night.

Owen Coyle introduced Tungay and the substitute almost reduced the arrears but couldn`t direct a great cross from Petrov with his header. But it was to be United`s day and an emphatic win put us above City on goal difference.

Great result and performance from the team. The teams attacking football is fluid and exciting and you can see they're really enjoying their football which is such a contrast to last season. Bolton is never an easy game yet we made it look easy. Cleverley's injury is such a shame, the lads been great since coming into the first team and he will be missed the frustrating thing is the challenge was so clumsy and unnecessary. Hopefully we see a speedy recovery. If it's not Young who's splitting defences with amazing runs, crosses and link-up play it's Nani. Rooney and Hernandez were their typical selves up front, their link-up play and understanding is stunning, it's almost 2nd nature for Rooney to spot his run and pick him out. Rooney was my MOTM shortly followed by Nani.
