He has been criticised before for his lack of goals but this season Dimitar Berbatov has undoubtedly been on fire.

Another hat trick along with goals from Giggs and Nani saw United improve their goal difference against a lacklustre Birmingham side.

United opened the scoring in the second minute when Berbatov nodded home from close distance and really didn’t look like giving up their lead as he and Giggs added to United’s total before half time.

Berbatov completed his hat trick in in the second half and Nani got in on the act with a long range effort too.

Owen and Rooney could have added their names to the scoresheet too but poor finishing and decent keeping from the returning Ben Foster prevented United from extending their lead even further.
