Dimitar Berbatov hailed by Sir Alex Ferguson
Boss Sir Alex Ferguson hailed Dimitar Berbatov’s tally of 5 goals against Blackburn Rovers as a ‘fantastic achievement’. Manchester United defeated The Riversiders by 7 goals to 1. Ji-Sung Park and Luis Nani also made their way onto the scoresheet in an eight goal thriller at Old Trafford… 

It took Berbatov just 72 seconds to put United in front at The Theatre Of Dreams, with Ji-Sung Park following-up in due course. Berba then added one either side of half time, with Luis Nani bagging The Red’s fifth. Dimitar scored twice more, with Blackburn responding with a consolation late on.

The seven goals, including five from the Bulgarian springboards United into top spot in the Premier League. Arsenal’s 4-2 win over Aston Villa was quickly forgotten, as fans look to Newcastle United to add to the rot at Chelsea. A win on any form for Carlo Ancelotti’s side will place them back on top, as The Red Devils stand three points ahead with the same goal difference.

You can put that table in perspective by thinking back two weeks – when Sir Alex Ferguson found himself 12 goals off Chelsea’s goal diversity. Meanwhile, Berbatov finds himself top of the Premier League goalscoring list – on 11 goals, with Carlos Tevez his nearest threat on 9.

“Both Berbatov and Wayne were fantastic today.” Sir Alex said, reflecting on the infatic win. “They were a constant threat with their movement and passing, their one-twos. It was a top performance from both of them. It’s a fantastic achievement. And he could have had six with that header at the end. Paul Robinson made a very good save.”

“Strikers don’t feel as though they’re doing the right job unless they’re scoring. We’ve been searching for that consistency of performance in terms of our rhythm and tempo we’ve always been noted for. It came together today very well. Today it was back to normal. It was very pleasing, particularly because we’ve scored so many goals and improved our goal difference. It was a good team performance.” the boss added.

No one noticed the difference Anderson made in midfield. He charged through them and gave the team impetus. A great liberation for the team after watching Scholes, Carrick and Fletcher tapping the ball from one to other and never going pass anyone ever. For all Scholes greatness, his long cross field passes have become predictably monotonous, and Carrick and Fletcher’s horizontal taps and continuous looking for Scholes, even when he’s not on the pitch, drives me nuts. All hail the return of the mighty lungs, the wee king Anderson.

Mind you, it was just Blackburn on an off day…

Anderson played a pivotal role in most of the build up to most of the goals scored and my credit definitely goes to him. His surging runs kept the opponents on their toes. Midfield play was the key to our performance and credit to Anderson the unseen hero of the night.

I was at Old Trafford and was also impressed with Anderson , he played with an urgency thats been missing from midfield , this seemed to rub off on everyone , ok Blackburn were missing 7 players but United had to play their part and they were very clinical in every department.
For me I would have said possession was approx 80-20 percent to united but I read in a paper it was 60-40 shocking.
