Jussi Jaskailanen could have done better with a David Silva shot which he failed to stop cleanly. However there was no mistaking the quality of the Gareth Barry goal which followed. This was one in a lifetime because when was the last time Barry and quality were mentioned in the same sentence?
Bolton answered through Ivan Klasnic and at halftime the match was delicately poised at 2-1. Edin Dzeko made it difficult for Bolton thereafter with his second half strike as City built a two goal lead. But Kevin Davies taking advantage of a slow reacting defense was able to rise above to head the ball and cut the deficit. The match ended with City taking all three points and on top of the table.
Sergio Kun Aguero did not have to do much after his sensational debut against Swansea. But Bolton look good. They moved the ball well and they seem to come up with goals. They might be in for a high finish this season.
