"I think this year will be different for me," said Berbatov. "I've had a pre-season tour with the team, which I missed last year.
"And I really know how every player in the team plays now, so I can understand them better on the pitch.
"Plus, Sir Alex knows the best way he can use me. We have many games and I'm looking forward to each one so I can score goals and make my contribution to the team."
