Van`s the Man!

Van`s the Man!

Stamford Bridge, this Sunday, represents a decent challenge for Manchester United.

Our eagerness to fall behind mustn`t happen this Sunday otherwise Chelsea`s front four of Mata, Oscar, Hazard and Torres will be rubbing their hands with glee.

But Sir Alex Ferguson, ahead of the game, spent some of his pre-match press conference enthusing over the summer signing of Robin van Persie, a player who has scored five times, at Stamford Bridge, whilst in the colours of Arsenal.

This is the crux of what Sir Alex had to say,

"Robin`s performances are getting better all the time now."

"He`s got there with his fitness, which is fine now. But last week against Stoke and on Tuesday against Braga his movement was fantastic. I was really impressed with that."

"I thought it was really top, top stuff. We bought him for a reason - to make a difference."

"When we realised Robin wasn`t going to sign for Arsenal, we did our very, very best to get him at our club and we succeeded."

"We`re delighted with that and the signs have been terrific. Robin is a great professional. He trains very well and he has made an impact immediately. We brought him in to give us maturity up front and also the flexibility of different types of players."

"With Danny Welbeck, Chicharito, Van Persie and Wayne Rooney we have fantastic alternatives. The four of them could make the difference. Robin`s cross last week fro Wayne`s goal was the kind of cross a defender hates."

"It was whipped in between the last defender and the goalkeeper, it was brilliant."


Anyone who usually takes a punt on a first goals-scorer tomorrow; could do worse than opt for Van Persie!
