Wayne Rooney scored a second hat-trick in successive Barclays Premier League games as Manchester United blasted five past Bolton in a 5-0 victory at the Reebok Stadium.

Rooney follows Les Ferdinand, Ian Wright and Didier Drogba in becoming only the fourth player in Premier League history to achieve the feat, part of an overall 18-goal tally for the Red Devils, the best start since the new league was formed in 1992.

Indeed, Rooney has now scored eight goals this term, more than any top-flight side - with the exception of Manchester City - has managed between them, with Javier Hernandez adding two more on his first start of the campaign.
