Bolton Wanderers Vs. Manchester United: 3-0 United After 5-Minute Wayne Rooney Brace

Manchester United have trebled their lead over Bolton Wanderers in the last five minutes and you'd have to say it's been pretty easy for the defending champions. Mark Davies hauled down Nani as the winger was looking to make a quick burst down the right following a period of Bolton pressure (and an excellent save from David de Gea to deny the red-hot Ivan Klasnic), but the professional foul only put off the inevitable for a few minutes. And earned him a yellow card, too.

Anyway, shortly after the free kick a cross came in from the right again, and Wayne Rooney stuck out a toe to divert it into Jussu Jaskelainen's net. That wasn't the end of Bolton's misery, however - for some reason they opted to allow right back Phil Jones to walk into their penalty area and cut the ball back for Rooney to net from close range again just a few minutes later. The Trotters have only been spared a fourth goal thanks to the linesman's flag, too - this is officially a slaughter.
