Man Utd boss Moyes: Van Persie can better last season's goals tally

Manchester United boss David Moyes is convinced there's more to come from Robin van Persie.

Van Persie plundered 30 Premier League goals for Arsenal in the 2011-12 season and 25 for United in last season's title-winning campaign, meaning he is on course for a hat-trick of Golden Boot wins, awarded each year to the league's top scorer.

Asked if van Persie could surpass his remarkable achievements in his first season at United, Moyes said: "I hope he can.

"His goals [against Swansea] were top goals, those of a top goalscorer, and in ways you can see the different it makes.

"The performance of the team - we can play better - but I thought his finishes made the difference."
