Poor 1st half performance cost United 3 points in Reebok Stadium. United have good starting line up although Cristiano Ronaldo was rested after playing for Portugal national team recently and not even in the team list.
In the Bolton match, United’s midfield was outplay by Ivan Campo’s and co, poor passing, no creativity and only able had single shot on target. I think main problem is Carrick-Hargreaves partnership in midfield, both defensive midfield unable to provide any spark to the attack and United are just looks like a soul-less team.
Unitl Anderson came out from the bench in the second half, United’s attacking style was turned on, Carrick remain in midfield but Hargreaves was moved to right back as Brown paired with Ferdinand in center back after Pique substituted.
Unietd dominants the second half but still unable to unlock Bolton’s defence, Tevez keep his hardwork but Saha looks rusty, I think bring in another striker in January is priority if United want to keep the title. The lost allowed Arsenal wider the gaps to 3 points and a game in hand. Hope United can bounce back strongly in next match and keep the hope to retain their title.
