Dimitar Berbatov opened the scoring with a header from a Ryan Giggs corner. Berbatov‘s second goal came following a brilliant long range pass from Darren Fletcher to Nani, who put a cross in to the box. Berb controlled with his thigh before dispatching an overhead kick which hit the cross bar and bounced over the line. To complete the hattrick, Berbatov grabbed another header, this time from a John O’Shea cross, 6 minutes from time.
