United produced an impressive performance against Owen Coyle’s Greater-Manchester rivals, who for the majority of the match, struggled to cope with the fluidity and movement of a Reds team high on confidence. Chicharito, however, was keen to express how tough the task at hand was.
He told MUTV: “It was not easy. It was a very difficult game. Everybody knows about the Reebok stadium and the Bolton team, and it is very difficult. Thankfully we played very well. We managed to score a lot of goals and we created a lot of chances.
“We scored a goal really early and that helped us to manage the game in a different way. When you score the other team needs to get one back and you can start to take control."
