United go top

Published Add your comment

Manchester United survived a second-half scare to reclaim top spot in the Premier League with a 2-1 win over Bolton.

United were in complete control once Zat Knight had put Michael Owen's fifth-minute header into his own net.

Antonio Valencia doubled the Red Devils' lead with his first goal for the club before half-time. But after a series of saves from Jussi Jaaskelainen, Matty Taylor pulled one back and United were clinging on at the end.
