Berbatov joined Manchester United from Spurs on transfer deadline day.
“I really wanted to score a goal,” Berbabtov told MUTV. “But the three points are the most important thing and we were the better team today. We scored two goals but missed four or five chances.
“I’m happy with how I’m playing, particularly after today.
“The game was good for me. I didn’t take my chances so hopefully in the future I will score.
“I think today was a big improvement from myself and from the team. I’m working really hard to help the team and so I can develop a better understanding with everyone. I’m sure that will happen.”
