Striker Robin van Persie has acknowledged that the 4-1 win over Swansea for Manchester United during the weekend was extremely important for the club. Manchester United were extremely overpowered in the first 30 min by a Swansea team that was attempting to run away with the match. However, Swansea were not able to take their chances that came along the way. United they managed to break away and score with probably their first big attempt. Unsurprisingly, it was Robin van Persie who came up with the first goal. The former Arsenal striker has been hugely influential for United since joining the club last year.
He was a £ 24 million signing, but he has already scored more than 30 goals in the league for the club. His second goal came in the second half with a wonderful strike that confirmed the three points for the club. Danny Welbeck scored the goals to improve his confidence, as he scored only one league goal throughout last campaign. Van Persie has praised the style of football adopted by Swansea and it was certainly pleasurable to score against such a team. After several years without a trophy Arsenal, the Dutch striker managed to make his first season at United memorable with his first English league title.
“It is the first game of the league away from home. They are a great team the way they play. I love the way they play and they are very hard to play at times. It is a big win. The first goal changed the game and we got the second shortly after so it helped us. The first one I had a touch and felt at the time it was quite heavy so I had to take it (the shot) as high as possible,” said the striker.
