FULL-TIME Man Utd 3-0 Bolton
Michael Carrick on Paul Scholes’ goalscoring return in Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Bolton: “It was fitting that he scored on his first start back. It was great to have him back because he’s such a great player. He fitted right in and although he was blowing a bit after an hour it was great to have him in the side.”

Referee: Peter Walton (Northamptonshire)
Man Utd missed penalty: Adam Bogdan is dodgy from 90 yards but unbeatable from 12. The Bolton keeper springs to his right to superbly stop Wayne Rooney’s spot-kick, correctly given after Zat Knight brought down Danny Welbeck in the area.
Man Utd goal: This one WAS in the script. David Wheater blocks Nani’s cross but Wayne Rooney is first to the loose ball and fires the ball across goal, where Danny Welbeck helps it on for Paul Scholes to sweep home. Nothing Adam Bogdan can do about that one.
GOAL Man Utd 2-0 Bolton (Danny Welbeck)
Man Utd goal: Wayne Rooney plays in Danny Welbeck on the edge of the area and he gets enough on his stretching first-time shot to beat Adam Bogdan.
