United moved level on points with Manchester City at the top of the Barclays Premier League thanks to a routine 3-0 win over Bolton Wanderers at Old Trafford.
The Reds dominated from the first whistle and went close to scoring an early goal on several occasions, most notably when Wayne Rooney's penalty was saved by the impressive Adam Bogdan.
Paul Scholes, making his first start since coming out of retirement, eventually broke the deadlock with a neat finish just before half-time following some good work from Nani and Rooney.
Danny Welbeck stabbed home to double United's lead on 74 minutes before Michael Carrick steered a left-footed finish in from 25 yards to seal all three points at the Theatre of Dreams.
As ever, club photographers John and Matt Peters and their colleagues were on hand to capture the action and we’ve compiled some of their best work to help retell the story for your viewing pleasure.
