Manchester United manage Sir Alex Ferguson says striker Dimitar Berbatov always has a goal in him after seeing the Bulgarian notch his first UEFA Champions League goal since 2008.

The 30-year-old headed United level against Benfica before the Red Devils relinquished their second-half lead to draw 2-2 at Old Trafford.

It was Berbatov's second goal of the season in just his fifth start, and Ferguson admits he's always thinking of the forward despite his all-star attacking options.

"He's always been involved," said Ferguson. "He's not had the starts but that's all to do with the partnerships we've had this season.

"He's done very well tonight and could've scored a hat-trick. It was a bad decision when he was flagged offside in the first half - it was never offside. And he missed an opportunity near the end, he was a bit unlucky but maybe he could've taken it down.

"Nonetheless, he played very well and there's always a goal in Dimi, always the ability to turn a game. That's why I played him. He's always in my thoughts."
