Dimitar Berbatov insists his fledgling partnership with Wayne Rooney is still a work in progress.
Both men got on the scoresheet on Saturday as Manchester United eventually cruised to a 4-0 win over West Brom at Old Trafford.
"Our partnership is progressing well," said Berbatov. "You can see it on the pitch. We have been working in training to try and understand each other and it is working. The result was really good."
Although Berbatov gives the impression of being totally unconcerned about anything, he was desperate to score his first goal at the Theatre of Dreams since his £30.75million deadline-day move from Tottenham.
It duly arrived at the end of a 15-minute purple patch for United in which the hope West Brom had slowly been building throughout a goalless first-half evaporated.
Rooney started the romp. As it is October, he could afford to adopt a phlegmatic approach to Mark Halsey's decision to disallow a first-half effort for a foul on Gianni Zuiverloon.
Amazingly, Rooney has now scored 17 goals in the last 12 appearances he has made in the month of his birthday - and there are still a couple of weeks to go.
He netted for the sixth successive game when he collected Berbatov's short pass, cut inside Ryan Donk, then fired neatly past a previously unbeatable Scott Carson.
"I am really enjoying it at the minute," said the 22-year-old.
"I don't know why I go on these scoring runs but I will just carry on playing the best I can, hopefully the goals will keep coming and I can help the team win."
