Manchester United forward Carlos Tevez has distanced himself from reports which suggested he was not happy with his current form in the Barclays Premier League.

The Argentina striker has scored just once this season and had reportedly suggested his form had been affected because of the work he has to do for the team in English football's top division.

However, he said in a statement on Thursday night: "I have not given any interviews saying I have any difficulties in the Premier League. I love playing in the Premier League and I am very happy at Manchester United."

The statement continued: "I want to help the team win and am not worried where I play on the pitch, neither do I feel any extra pressure playing in the Premier League compared to other leagues.

"I have absolutely no idea where the reports came from. I have given no interview saying I have any difficulties at all with my form or the Premier League itself."

Tevez's strike partner Wayne Rooney, meanwhile, admits he is happy with his recent goal flurry and insists he never doubted his ability to find the net.

"Goals are going in for me and I'm really pleased. I work every day on my finishing and it's going well," he told the club's website,

"You can always improve, there are weaknesses there I can improve on. I've worked a lot on my finishing and it's starting to pay off on the pitch now which I'm happy about.

"I believe I'm going to score in any game anyway. I'm a confident person and I'm delighted they are going in at the moment. Hopefully I can keep it going."
