Arsenal's Van Persie concedes he was 'a little bit offside'

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has admitted he was 'a little bit offside' for his equaliser at Chelsea on Sunday. The Dutchman said in the Evening Standard: "I scored a goal against Chelsea (in a 2-0 home defeat in December 2005). I was onside, but the ref gave it offside and it didn't count.

"This time was maybe a little bit offside, but it counted and that's all that matters."
