Dimitar Berbatov has no doubt Manchester United will come through their all-English Champions League semi-final with Arsenal.

United set up the meeting of minds between Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger with their win over Porto in Portugal Berbatov expects United to be the ones booking a trip to Rome on May 27.

"The Arsenal games are going to be great for everybody to watch and I know it is going to be difficult," said the Bulgarian. "They are a great team. But we are Manchester United, so I think we are going to win."

Cristiano Ronaldo's wonder goal has revived talk of an unprecedented quintuple, as well as ensuring there will be a trio of Premier League clubs in the last four of Europe's most prestigious competition for the third season running.

Berbatov has not been an unqualified success since his arrival from Tottenham in a club record £30.75million deal last summer.

The Bulgarian's languid style is not to everyone's taste and supporters who love the all-action approach of Carlos Tevez, the man who has been squeezed out by Berbatov's arrival, accuse the new boy of not working hard enough.

Yet there has never been an indication Sir Alex Ferguson is unhappy.

However, Berbatov is aware he needs to put some major medals on the table, to prove he is the equal of his illustrious team-mates.

"It is very close but things can happen, so it is best not to think too far ahead," he said.

"We are determined to defend this trophy and the fact we now have to face another English team makes it a little bit different. But we should still be confident."
