Bolton v Manchester United Preview
It’s the stretch run in the Premiership and Manchester United are in a familiar position, at the top of the table. Bolton are fighting for survival but are now eights points from 18th place.
Manchester United have won their last four Premier League matches and now lead by one point at the top of the table. United will be without Michael Owen, Anderson, and Wes Brown. The key player for the Red Devils has been Wayne Rooney, who has scored eight goals in his last five matches. He has 26 goals in 29 EPL matches and could score over 40 goals in all competitions.
Bolton has improved since new manager Owen Coyle took over in January. They have won three out of their last five and should be safe from relegation with a few more wins. Stuart Holden, Chris Basham, Gavin McCann, Sean Davis, and Joey O’Brien are all out with injuries for the Wanderers. It will be a tough test to face Man U but Bolton has been transformed under Coyle.
A slip-up by United could allow Arsenal or Chelsea to take the lead. While Bolton are not one of the strongest teams, they are not be taken lightly at the Reebok Stadium. Rooney will be the focus of the Bolton defense so there should be space for Nani, Berbatov, and Valencia.
Manchester United probably won’t dominate the match and win by four goals. More than likely it will be a 1-0 or 2-1 victory with a goal from Rooney.
