Dennis reckons Berba's impressive early season form is due to the arrival of our Mexican lad Chicharito.
United legend Denis Irwin believes Dimitar Berbatov’s fantastic early-season form could be due to the arrival of Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez.
"The signing of Chicharito has maybe given Berbatov that added pressure he might have needed," Denis said on MUTV. "Knowing there is a young hungry kid waiting to take his place might have helped to push him on."
Ex-defender Irwin is especially pleased by Berba answering the boss' call for more goals.
“We all know about Dimitar’s ability to create goals," added Denis. "He's a very talented player, but we needed him to score more goals. Getting a few on the pre-season tour of America will have boosted his confidence and that is definitely showing now. He has certainly started the season well, with two goals in the first three games."

Hmm Berba does look a little extra settled and has been inspiring in the last 4 matches. And lets hope it continues. Iv always been a massive fan of the Bulgarian, and goals aren't really an issue for me. As long as he contributes to the United cause than Im all good.
