Dimitar Berbatov insists that Manchester United is in a strong position to take a fourth Premier League title in a row. The Bulgarian, who scored his fifth goal of the season in United’s 3-1 victory over Hull City on Sunday, says that the end of the team’s injury crisis marks the start of a winning run that leads to title glory in May.
“I think that we are in a great position,” said Berbatov, who was recently named Bulgarian Player of the Year.
“There are still a lot of games to go and it will be difficult. I think it will be decided between us and Chelsea but in the end I think we’ll end up on top.
“We have great players so let’s see what happens. There are a lot of games at this time of year but if you win every one we have a great chance.
“It was an important win for us [against Hull]. We’ve had a difficult time with injuries, but we still have a great squad and players are starting to come back and we will go on a winning run now.
“The boss knows what to do in terms of changing things when he needs to and I’m sure we’ll finish on top at the end of the season.”
United start the match against Wigan Athletic at Old Trafford on Tuesday night five points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea, with a game in hand on the Londoners. Chelsea will also lose Didier Drogba, Salamon Kalou and John Obi Mikel to the African Cup of Nations during January and February 2010.
