This was evident in our recent defeat against Liverpool, who had lost to relegation fodder West Ham the week before.
“We never go into a game looking for a draw or thinking we’d be happy with a point. We aim to win each game,” said Berbatov. “The difficulty is that other teams lift their game when they play Manchester United. We’re the biggest club, so it’s only natural. I understand that. That makes our job harder, but that’s not an excuse: we need to be better away from home. At Old Trafford, we’re doing really well. We’re entertaining the fans, we’re scoring a lot of goals. The aim is to bring that to our away performances.”
