United’s 50 Premier League opponents: Bolton Wanderers

To mark Manchester United facing a 50th different club in the Premier League, following Luton Town’s promotion, we’re recalling our record against each one and showing the highlights from some classic meetings.

Bolton Wanderers were one of the 12 founding members of the Football League in 1888 and last appeared in the Premier League during the 2011/12 campaign. Since then, they have played in all three tiers of the EFL. The Trotters currently reside in League One after losing to Barnsley in May’s play-off semi-finals for a place in the Championship.

In the first video we have selected, United comfortably beat Bolton 4-0 on the opening day of the 2003/04 Premier League season. Despite the flurry of goals, it was an 18-year-old by the name of Cristiano Ronaldo who stole the headlines with an exciting 30-minute cameo on his debut.
