Arsenal ace Robin van Persie says he doesn't feel any extra pressure being the club's leading striker now that Emmanuel Adebayor has left.

He said: "The way we are doing it now is that everyone is sharing the goals. I'm quite happy with that but I should score more personally, especially against Wigan. But as long as we share the goals and everyone is passing it at the right moment, I am happy.

"If one striker scores 40 or 50 goals I would rely on him. But that happens once every 10 years. I'm quite happy to share the goals.

"But I don't feel that I'm at the top of my game as a main striker yet. I have to improve on many things but it is quite new and the main thing is that the boss really backs me on this one. He really thinks I can succeed as he has a lot of trust in me."
