Berbatov asks Man Utd colleagues to keep it simple

Hat-trick hero Dimitar Berbatov is urging his Manchester United team-mates to stop making things so complicated. Berbatov came to United's rescue at Old Trafford on Sunday, scoring the dramatic late winner - and becoming the first man to score a hat-trick against their old rivals since 1946 - to seal a 3-2 win over Liverpool.

Yet the heroics would not have been necessary if United had retained the two-goal cushion Berbatov had presented them with before the interval.

Given United threw away a two-goal advantage at Everton in injury-time last week and contrived to draw a game they thought was won at Fulham last month, Berbatov believes it is time his team-mates started to learn a few lessons.

"Let us hope in the future we won't complicate it so much," he said. "We have to keep working and improving on that.

"There is a long way ahead of us but hopefully in the end we will be on top."
