Sean Mullan assesses how each United player performed in the win over Bolton...
Rafael: Showed a willingness to go forward, and linked up well with Valencia down the right. Made a brave block to deny Martin Petrov, and also made an important goal-line clearance with the score still at 1-0.
Rio Ferdinand: Solid performance from the long-serving defender. One fine run which included a nutmeg on an opponent had the crowd chanting his name.
Jonny Evans: Looked confident on the ball and was prepared to drive forward when the opportunity allowed. Along with Ferdinand, he kept the Bolton attack largely quiet.
Patrice Evra: The captain's positioning was usually spot on at the back; was relatively quiet going forward but went close with a header from a corner.
Antonio Valencia: A superb attacking and crossing display from the Ecuadorian. He constantly found space wide on the right, and supplied a clever throughball for Welbeck to win the penalty.
Michael Carrick: An assured performance featured some excellent passing - for example, a perfectly-weighted ball to set up Welbeck for an early chance. Capped a fine display with an accurate sidefoot finish for United's third goal.
