Bolton Wanderers' hellish stretch to start the season continues as they take on the champions, Manchester United, in their fourth game of this young 2011/2012 season. In the last 13 times that Manchester United and Bolton met, the Red Devils won a staggering 11 of those matches. However, in the last game that United played at the Reebok, the score was all even at two apiece.

The Trotters will have their work cut out for them as United have already scored a massive 13 goals in three matches this season compared to Bolton's seven in the league. Both Nemanja Vidic and Danny Welbeck are out for Manchester United but Javier Hernandez is set to make his first start of the season. Even though Stuart Holden has made a few appearances for Bolton Reserves, it doesn't look like he is ready for first team action just yet.
