Berbatov: United will dig deep

Published Add your comment

Dimitar Berbatov insists Manchester United will stay strong as they bid to recover from their mini-slump.

After successive Barclays Premier League defeats to Liverpool and Fulham, United host Aston Villa on Sunday - by which time they may have been replaced at the top of the table by Rafael Benitez's men, who are at Craven Cottage themselves 24 hours earlier.

"We are a strong team and we all support each other," Berbatov told MUTV. "We know how to react after defeats."

Anderson has been forced to pull out of World Cup duty with Brazil after picking up a thigh injury, and Berbatov is also struggling to be fit after suffering an ankle problem at Fulham which ruled him out of Bulgaria's draw with the Republic of Ireland last weekend.

However, the former Tottenham striker is not getting too downhearted - and insists the atmosphere within the Old Trafford camp is still good.

He continued: "International breaks are sometimes difficult, because you have two games and you come back and can be a little bit tired; then you have a game immediately after that.

"But that's our job - there's no need to complain."

Although they appear to be in turmoil as they try to resist Liverpool's recent rally, United are still well placed to complete an unprecedented quintuple.

"Everything is possible," he added.

"If you believe and have faith, and you really want it, it can happen."
