Berbatov hit the post in a typical showing of both brilliance and anonymity but Dutchman Jol played down the attention the Bulgarian receives.
"It's the same all the time with him," said the Dutchman. "If you get a win or a draw then everyone says he's superb.
"If you don't, they say he's strolling around.
"I'm very happy he's here, most of the time he makes the difference. But look at our other players too. I think collectively we've done ever so well since the turn of the year."
