Man Utd 2-0 Bolton Highlights
A controversial penalty scored by Cristiano Ronaldo set Manchester United on their way to victory over Bolton.
Ronaldo put United ahead after referee Rob Styles awarded United a penalty even though Jlloyd Samuel’s tackle on the Portuguese winger was a fair one.
The incident proved decisive because up until then United had been thwarted by Bolton keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen.
Wayne Rooney curled in United’s second after a Ronaldo back-flick as Bolton were left seething over the penalty.
The incident could spark renewed debate about video technology but in all honesty the official should never have given a penalty.
United eventually ran out comfortable winners and deserved the three points but had the penalty not been awarded the result could have been different.
