Video: Dimitar Berbatov pleased with Manchester United’s performance against Watford

by Leo Nieboer

Dimitar Berbatov was very happy with Manchester United’s first half performance against Watford on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho’s men started the game slowly but became utterly dominant following Romelu Lukaku’s goal, his fourth of the season.

Chris Smalling added a second three minutes later and Man United wasted a series of excellent opportunities to put the game beyond doubt.

Shooting a video from his home, the former United striker was pleased with what he was seeing.

We should be cautiously pleased with the way United have recovered from that awful display at Brighton. Even against Tottenham Hotspur, losing 3-0, they created a host of chances.

Against Burnley they created even more, scoring twice before half time before squandering a number of opportunities after the break. With Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard floating around and Lukaku acting as a reference point, chances are falling United’s way.

Their conviction in front of goal, however, remains a concern. Lukaku has four goals this season but no other attacking player – save from Paul Pogba’s penalty against Leicester City – has got on the board yet. That needs to change fast.
