Man Utd 2-0 Bolton Highlights
Manchester United brushed aside Bolton to move three points clear of Arsenal at the top of the Premier League.
Stand-in skipper Cristiano Ronaldo was in brilliant form, shooting home from a corner before striking a sensational free-kick that moved through the air. Bolton, who have lost their last five league games, might have equalised but Tomasz Kuszczak denied Kevin Davies. Kuszczak also denied Nicky Hunt and Gavin McCann while Nani and Ronaldo almost extended United’s lead. It was United’s game in hand on Arsenal and they did not waste it, while Chelsea drew 4-4 at Tottenham on what turned out to be an excellent night for Sir Alex Ferguson’s team. At one point in the season Bolton had ascended to 13th in the Premier League table but they now appear to be in deep trouble, third from bottom and with games against Arsenal and Chelsea among their remaining eight fixtures.
