And so Robin Van Persie continues to endear himself to the Old Trafford faithful.

His eighth Premier League goal of the season set us on the way to victory although playing against his former club made the day a little special with van Persie admitting in an interview afterwards,

‘It was a special day, in the end it was about the game and I think we played well. We were a bit sloppy with the chances we did not take, we should have scored more but we got three points!”

‘It is the first time ever I have played against my former club, but in the end it is about the game and we won it, I am pleased with that.’


And on the muted celebration

‘I played there for eight years, I had a fantastic time there and I respect the fans, manager, players and the whole club so that is why I didn’t celebrate.’

Fair play to the Dutchman.
