After listening to 'the little boy inside' him and moving to Manchester United, Robin Van Persie has been prolific in-front of goal, scoring 11 goals in 16 Premier League games for the Manchester giants. Getting the Red Devils out of some sticky situations in the process.
The Manchester United front man has made a string of impressive performances in recent weeks for the Red Devils and helped get United out of another sticky situation against Spurs in the Premier League.
United started the match well and kept things ticking along at a good pace, pinging the ball around with confidence as they looked to break-through the Tottenham defence. Sir Alex Ferguson would have told his side to keep things tight in the first 20 minutes to avoid a repeat of the match against Spurs at Old Trafford. United were containing their opposition well and on 25 minutes their star man, Robin van Persie put the Red Devils 1-0 up with a superb header at the back post from Tom Cleverly's cross.
United continued to defend well and looked to cause Tottenham problems on the counter attack and should of arguably been further ahead before half-time. Spurs, though, emerged from the tunnel after the interval and put the pressure on United with some slick passing play. David De Gea made numerous saves to keep the scores level but finally succumbed to the pressure in injury time when he punched clear a cross. The Spaniard was unlucky to see his punch fall to Aaron Lenon who calmly passed the ball across the box to Clint Dempsey who in turn slotted the ball into the back of the net to give Spurs a share of the spoils.
The 29-year-old how now scored 22 goals in 28 games in all competitions for Manchester United and is the Premier Leagues top scorer.
