Arsenal's Van Persie hopes for injury-free campaign

Robin van Persie is desperate for an injury-free season at Arsenal.

"Last year I missed too many games and I am still disappointed about it," the Dutchman told arsenal.com. "But that is life. That is football and things can happen. I accepted it.

"This is a new year with new chances. Hopefully I can be injury-free this year. Last year I played 16 games and scored seven goals - that is nearly one out of two. It is not too bad.

"I just want to have the same results this season with a few more matches."
