As big as Robin Van Persie’s goal was today, it was his celebration that will make the most noise.
It isn’t easy to see a former player turnout for a ‘rival’ but Van Persie has been gracious since the move, speaking highly of his former club as well as former manager Arsene Wenger.
Last term he refused to celebrate either of the goals he scored against Arsenal last season but today he made no mistake about letting Arsene Wenger know that he is well and truly a United player.
Prior to goal, Arsenal fans had goaded the striker calling him a C yoU Next Tuesday as well as chanting “8 points clear Robin, 8 points clear” so it was fitting that he had the last word, catapulting United firmly back into the title race (we were never out of it).
