Dimitar Berbatov says he is happy with his form for new club Manchester United, despite failing to get on the scoresheet in the win over Bolton.

The Bulgarian is still searching for his first goal for United since his protracted move from Tottenham on transfer deadline day, but believes his performance was his best so far for the club.

"I really wanted to score a goal," Berbabtov told MUTV. "But the three points are the most important thing and we were the better team today. We scored two goals but missed four or five chances.

"I'm happy with how I'm playing, particularly after today.

"The game was good for me. I didn't take my chances so hopefully in the future I will score.

"I think today was a big improvement from myself and from the team. I'm working really hard to help the team and so I can develop a better understanding with everyone. I'm sure that will happen."

United chief Sir Alex Ferguson was delighted with Berbatov's performance and feels he adds a lot more to United' game with his ability to hold the ball up front.

"You don't need to pass to him in space all the time. You can pass to him when he's marked - he's brilliant at that and he produced some great moments, as did a lot of the players. His touch was fantastic at times," he said.
