Chelsea are now 5 points clear at the top of the Premiership after their 1-0 win over Man United. See all the latest BestPrice outright betting here.

Manchester United’s Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov has set his sights on winning the Champions League after breaking his country’s goal-scoring record.

Berbatov twice in Bulgaria’s 4-1 friendly win over Malta on Wednesday to take his total to 48 international goal and surpass the tally of former midfielder Hristo Bonev.

“I’m happy with the record because it was one of my aims,” he told reporters at Sofia airport on Thursday. “I’ve achieved a lot and now (winning) the Champions League remains my only unrealised dream.”

The 28-year-old has reached the final of Europe’s premier competition on two occasions, as part of Bayer Leverkusen’s team that lost 2-1 to Real Madrid in the 2002 final and the United side beaten 2-0 by Barcelona in May.

“I took part in two finals and failed to win it so now I hope to make it third time lucky,” Berbatov said.

Former record-holder Bonev, 62, said: “I knew long ago Berbatov would break my record but I’m proud a player with such class did it. He is a top player … and I think it’s going to be many years before there’s another striker like him in the national team.”
