Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has had a dig at London rivals Chelsea by saying that no amount of money could tempt him to play for a club with a defensive set-up.

He said: "There are only a few teams in Europe that play the way that Arsenal play. I'll always go for a team where I would earn less money but who play fantastic football rather than to a team where you can earn lots of money, win every week 1-0 or 2-0, but who play defensively.

"I don't like to run after people all game long. I like it when they have to run after me. That is the way I see football and that is the way I want to play it."
