Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra has hailed the hunger of Robin van Persie.

The Dutchman hit two spectacular goals in victory at Swansea City.

"I keep telling Robin to calm down. I don't know why he can't start a little more softly," Evra joked.

"He scored two in the Community Shield and scored two again at Swansea. He's a great player and he's hungry, he wants to win more trophies."
