This football malarky is just too easy for Manchester United, eh? Within five minutes of taking the field at the Reebok Stadium, the champions are ahead through the right boot of 'Chicharito' Javier Hernandez, who slid home from close range following a cross by Nani. Wayne Rooney was the man who made it happen, though, spotting the Portuguese's run down the right wing and threading a ball through the Bolton defence to find him. Converting from there was simplicity in itself, and it's 1-0 United.
Bolton aren't going to lie down and just take a beating, however, and the hosts have responded well, forcing United back into their own penalty box and Rooney into a critical block on his own goalline following a scramble that didn't see David de Gea looking particularly competent. There's been more bad news for the visitors as well, with Tom Cleverley forced off with an injury - Michael Carrick replaces him. Still, United have scored and Bolton haven't, so it's happy times at the Reebok for Sir Alex Ferguson and company.
