Whilst our attacking players are on the receiving end of some stick at the moment, Sir Alex Ferguson says he is happy with how Dimitar Berbatov is playing and is just waiting for the first goal to come.

“It is his style of play rather than the effect he has on the game,” said Ferguson. “He is a very good player and I am particularly happy with him. Dimitar would like to score a goal. Strikers always feel as if scoring goals is the most important thing. That is the case with him and Michael, who could also do with one. He should have scored two on Wednesday. His movement and positional play in the final third is very good. We are just waiting on that one goal because it will set him off. I am sure of that.”
