United face West Bromwich, away, tonight in the hope of beating Chelsea’s record of 10 clean sheets in a row in the Premier League. However, the Champions have 13 first-team players injured so caution is necessary, according to two of the fit key men, Dimitar Berbatov and Ryan Giggs.

‘When we last met they outplayed us at times in the first half with their passing and movement and kept it at 0-0 until half-time.

‘They’re on a good run at the moment, especially at home, and they’re a team that likes to play football so it’ll be a tough game.

‘We’re just focused on getting the three points and staying top. Once you hit the front you want to stay there and that’s definitely our aim.’


These were the wise words of Ryan Giggs even though I can’t really remember West Brom outplaying us with their passing – but they certainly kept the score at 0-0 until half-time. Rooney broke the deadlock that time and he won’t play tonight but Dimitar Berbatov is still confident.

“Against West Brom we expect it to be very difficult, but the quality we have and the way we have prepared makes me confident that, if we concentrate and focus for the full 90 minutes, we will take all three points.”

Just be at the right place at the right time, Dimitar, like at Bolton and there will be no trouble…
