Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson says Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is his Player of the Year.

Lawro wrote in the Mirror: "I'd go Robin van Persie.

"Firstly, I know it is only half the season for United but last season he was fantastic for Arsenal so you can legitimately say that he has done it all year.

"I don't see a better striker in the League including Luis Suarez despite his brilliance this season."
