Dimitar Berbatov’s late goal sent Manchester United to the top of the Premier League table and heaped more pressure on Liverpool.
Berbatov headed home from close range after good work from Carlos Tevez on the stroke of 90 minutes as the game looked to heading towards a tame draw.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side had endured a frustrating afternoon with Bolton keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen in fine form.
But their victory now sees them go one point clear of second placed Liverpool.
