Dimitar Berbatov has reflected on his match winning performance against Liverpool, where he became the first United player to score a hattrick against our hated in rivals in over 60 years.

“It was probably my best day in a United shirt,” said Berbatov. “Obviously I am happy. I am going home with a smile on my face. But I am nothing special. I am going home to play with my kids.”

His second goal is probably the best we’ll see all season but Berbatov spoke modestly of the goal.

“I never saw the ball go in the back of the net,” he admitted. “But when I heard the crowd scream it was easy to guess what had happened. It was a good goal, but as long as the ball hits the back of the net it doesn’t matter.”
