3 Players United Will Have To Be Wary Of – Bolton

published :

Manchester United of course play Bolton away tomorrow in the Premier League and with that in mind it’s worth taking a look at these three players who we should be wary of going into the game.

Gary Cahill

Over the way he’s developed over the last three and a half years at Bolton, Aston Villa must be rueing the day that they sold Cahill, who is arguably one of the best (as well as young) centre-backs in the country at the moment.

Cahill has started the season well and even though Bolton have lost 2/3 of their league games so far this season, he’s looked in fine form and starred in their opening-day victory away to QPR scoring a peach of a goal from about 25 yards out that was spectacular to say the least.

Due to Rio Ferdinand being out injured, Cahill was selected to play for England in their two Euro 2012 qualifiers this week and starred in both games, scoring against Bulgaria. He has the ability to hurt us in both boxes and if he has a good day, so might Bolton at our expense.

Kevin Davies

You may not like him but that will not bother Davies who has made a legacy in troubling defenders with his rugged and aggressive in attack for Bolton. Whilst he may not score 10-15 goals a season in the league, his work-rate is exceptional and has won him many plaudits.

Following the sale of Kevin Nolan to Newcastle United in January 2009, Davies became captain of Bolton and the added responsibility has improved his game. Last season he impressed Fabio Capello enough and made his debut for England against Montenegro at Wembley.

Davies has caused all the top teams problems during his time at the Reebok and there’s no doubt he will test our centre-halves this weekend, who will have to work hard to make sure he causes David De Gea as little problems as possible in goal.

Martin Petrov

Moving to Bolton last year on a free was a great move for Petrov who flourished under Owen Coyle last season despite picking up a couple of niggling injuries. The Bulgarian showed that he was still good enough to play in the Premier League and has started this season well.

Make no mistake about it; the former Manchester City winger still has enough quality to trouble the best sides in the league as he showed in Bolton’s 3-2 home defeat against City in the second week of the season when he set up both of Bolton’s goals.

Last season he ran United ragged with his runs and work-rate in midfield and put Bolton ahead with a terrific run and shot that deflected in off Jonny Evans. Sadly for him Michael Owen scored a late equaliser and he will be determined to trouble United again this weekend.
