Dimitar Berbatov celebrates scoring against Liverpool.

Match Rewind: Watch Berba’s hat-trick

The latest match to be shown in full and for free on the Official App and on the ManUtd.com homepage is our 3-2 victory over Liverpool in September 2010.

In the current absence of live football we’ve been giving fans the opportunity to reflect on some classic United games from our archive, as part of the ‘Match Rewind’ series.
The latest vote pitted four memorable Reds games involving hat-tricks - scored by Dwight Yorke, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dimitar Berbatov and Robin van Persie respectively - against each other, and it was Berba’s blistering treble that came out on top.
UNITED 3-2 LIVERPOOL (2010/11)

The Bulgarian loves to take centre stage and he couldn’t have picked a more opportune moment to put in a virtuoso display. The striker nodded United ahead in this clash, from a Ryan Giggs corner, before adding a sublime second on 59 minutes. Berbatov controlled Nani’s cross inside the Liverpool box and then artfully guided the ball into the top corner from an acrobatic overhead-kick. It was a goal worthy of winning any match, but Steven Gerrard’s brace, soon after, meant that wasn’t going to be the case, as our Merseyside foes looked set to leave Old Trafford with a share of the spoils. However, Berba had the final say. He headed in a late winner to earn all three points and became the first United player since 1946 to net three against Liverpool in a single game.
