Ronaldo and Rooney on fire for United

Published Add your comment

A controversial Cristiano Ronaldo penalty put Manchester United on the road to their first Premier League home win of the season - a 2-0 victory over Bolton.

Bolton were proving difficult opponents to overcome until referee Rob Styles amazingly awarded a penalty when he seemed perfectly placed to see Jlloyd Samuel play the ball as he made a tackle on Ronaldo.

The Portugal winger took full advantage of Styles' generosity and substitute Wayne Rooney wrapped up the win 13 minutes from time, curling home in superb fashion after exchanging passes with Ronaldo near the Bolton box.
