A sensational Dimitar Berbatov hat-trick saw Manchester United defeat Liverpool 3-2 at Old Trafford in a sensational Premier League game on Sunday. Steven Gerrard scored twice for the Roy Hodgson's side, his first coming from the penalty spot, but his brace wasn't enough.
At the end of last season, Dimitar Berbatov cut a dejected figure at Old Trafford. But a display of aerial prowess and, at times, sheer genius, has turned the Bulgarian into an indispensible asset to Manchester United’s title challenge
The striker was subbed with three minutes to go, and the standing ovation was a token of how the fans have finally warmed to a player who initially showed little work rate and desire to influence the game in the same fashion he had done at Tottenham Hotspur.
