PICTURES: Robin van Persie celebrates his goal against Arsenal

Robin van Persie

Arsene Wenger may still find him an “Arsenal Man” but Robin van Persie showed all the signs of being a “Man Utd Man” as he celebrated passionately with Wayne Rooney and the rest of the team after scoring the only goal of the match against the Gunners at Old Trafford on Sunday.

To be honest, I don’t find anything harm in it. In a high voltage, electrifying game like this, where both the teams are under immense pressure (especially the home side), such types of reaction are bound to happen. It was probably a natural outburst after scoring a brilliant goal and hardly means a sense of disrespect to his old club.

In the 27th min of the match, van Persie got the better of Arsenal defenders and headed the ball in superbly, meeting Wayne Rooney’s delicious corner. The tactical nerds that are divided into opinions regarding the importance of zonal marking, found something to debate on.

Arsenal still remain top of the Premier League with 25 points while the Red Devils have jumped few steps above in the 5th place with 20 points. Surely, they’re back in the title-race.
