Nani continues his good run of form with two assists

March 27, 2010

It’s not yet a case of ‘Cristiano who?’ but Nani has finally started to justify his hefty price tag, in his third season at Manchester United. Today he got two assists, and had a hand in another goal. As the Chalkboard shows, Nani’s crossing from wide positions on the left-hand side is not the best, but he is very effective at beating his full-back, coming inside and providing more accurate passes.

That was the case for United’s final two goals today, with the Bolton defence visibly tired from Nani’s constant runs.

He also played a part in United’s first goal – his pass to Giggs on the left-hand side in the 38th minute was a clever, over-the-shoulder flick that led to Giggs’ cross being diverted into the United net by J’Lloyd Samuel.

With United’s tendency to attack down the right-hand side, Sir Alex Ferguson will be pleased he can also rely on good service from the left.
