thumbnail Hello,

The in-form Bulgarian is aware of the threat posed by Alan Pardew's side as the Red Devils travel to the Sports Direct Arena on Wednesday, as he looks to continue his hot streak

Dimitar Berbatov is confident that Manchester United will not be intimidated by the intense atmosphere expected in Wednesday's away game against Newcastle.

The Bulgarian has admitted that the fans at the Sports Direct Arena can be intimidating, but does not expect the noise to faze his side as they look to bounce back from Saturday's 3-2 defeat to Blackburn.

Berbatov scored a second-half brace in the shock loss to Steve Kean's side, bringing his tally to six goals in the past three games, a patch of form he will hope to continue against the Magpies.

“Okay, it's a bit more passionate there, a bit louder than other places, but I don't think it will affect us much,” he told MUTV.

“We're professional players and we experience this every game. We go there as if it's any other game.”

The 30-year-old is aware of the threat posed by Alan Pardew's side, however, after they secured a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture back in November, and believes Newcastle fully deserve their current place of seventh in the Premier League.

“I think Newcastle have a really good team and good players, I don't think anybody should be surprised by their position. If you're high in the table then you deserve to be there,” he explained.
