Arsenal captain Robin van Persie says he's always trying to improve his game.

While the 28-year-old may be in sublime form in front of goal, he has no intentions of taking his eye off the ball.

"You can't dwell on things because there is always room for improvement," Van Persie said.

"I lost a couple of balls in the midfield area against Liverpool that I shouldn't have, so I am more interested in focusing on how to avoid that next time."

The Dutchman continued: "You always want to get the maximum out of your game - to make assists, to score goals, to be strong on the ball, to combine well with your team-mates and bring all these things together.

"It is rare that you can achieve it, but it has to be what you aim for and it is more important than pursuing one target."
