Lovenkrands believes he deserves the opportunity to prove his Premier League worth, firstly because of his hand in helping United win promotion and, secondly, since he claims he is a "completely different type" of player to his fellow strikers.
"I'm delighted to be up in the Premier League again. I hope it goes a bit differently this time," the former Rangers star told the Evening Chronicle.
"I obviously hope that we carry on improving, but I hope that I get credit for having been a large part of the team that got us up.
"I think I deserve to have a good chance again in the Premier League. Now we will see what happens in the transfer window, but I think Andy Carroll and I deserve another chance.
"But I have the advantage that the others are very similar, while I am a completely different type. It may be my chance."
