Van Persie says the secret was to keep contributing as much as he could.
He told manutd.com: "I try to improve every day, every month, every game. That’s my aim. You get spells that don’t go so well, when you don’t score so many goals. And I had one of those this season. Even so, I kept clearing headers from corner kicks, I cleared balls off the goal-line, I set up team-mates to score goals. I was never worried that I’d never score a goal again in my life. That 10-game streak where I didn’t score seemed a bigger issue for the media than it was for me."
