What you have to say about Bolton under Gary Megson, similar to when Sam Allardyce was manager, is that they will give United a proper physical battle.

They won't give away easy goals so United will have to earn their victory, but Sir Alex Ferguson has the advantage of being able to change his team and have that great insurance on the bench.

Sunderland gave them a real scare at Old Trafford last time around, but this should be more comfortable.

Verdict: 2-0


What's your thoughts, what team will we play and whats your score prediction?

Every week Bolton are described as battlers and thats because thats what they are , they don't play free flowing football and have found their niche which has allowed them to stay in the top division longer than most prople probrably would have forecast.

United were woeful against Sunderland and in thew eyes of some fans the blame falls solely on the shoulders of Ben Foster. Personally i think its harsh but no more than i expected. I'm not saying he has been faultless but on a few occasions he's been made the scapegoat where others were far more culpable.

Its likely that Van der Sar will make his return and i hope for his sake he is faultless or he might find himself being jumped on. Whether Edwins return inspires confidence or not i think Bolton might be on the end of a backlash.

Mystic Jarv predicts 3-0 to United

They don't play free flowing football? I gues no-one saw them tear Tottenham apart by playing football last time out then? Lee Young Chung and Tamir Cohen look like very good players. Get the ball down and play it about well. Tottenham got their goals the traditional "Bolton" way last time out and whilst I expect a physical battle I don't expect it to be the Route One fest the media and others predict.

Wayne Rooney will miss Manchester United's game against Bolton on Saturday due to a calf strain, while the club are waiting to hear if Dimitar Berbatov will be available.

The England striker has picked up a minor knock and will not be risked at Old Trafford, although he could feature in United's midweek UEFA Champions League game at CSKA Moscow.

"Calf injuries can be troublesome," said United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

"We are trying our best to get him fit for Wednesday but I have my doubts on that. But Wayne should be fit for the Liverpool game.

"We know how difficult these things can be so we will not be taking any chances with the Moscow trip."

Ferguson's striker conundrum is further exacerbated by Berbatov's possible absence due to his girlfriend giving birth in midweek.

The in-form front-man, who bagged a quickfire international hat-trick in midweek, has not yet returned from Bulgaria and is a real doubt for Saturday.

Ferguson will now almost certainly call on Michael Owen in their absence, with the England hopeful desperate for playing time having been given scant opportunity to impress to date.

Fit again Edwin van der Sar will reclaim his place in United's goal at the expense of Ben Foster.

For the veteran Dutchman it is a welcome first appearance of the season after he broke two fingers during a friendly with Bayern Munich in July.

"Edwin plays tomorrow," said Ferguson.

"He had a reserve game 10 days ago and has come through that fine. He has been training for quite a spell now but with a hand injury you don't take any chances and that game has given him a good confidence boost."


Wellbeck/Macheda and Owen upfront then, a chance for them to prove their worth

So Rooney and Berba having babies around the same time, talk about timing :D

Lee has been very good for Bolton from what I've seen and Kevin Davies is in good form. We'll need to play well and it's a good chance for Owen to lead the line.

2-0

Valencia's first goal for the club tidy finish.

Bolton have had 3 or 4 decent chances before this goal
