Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar says there's more to Robin van Persie than just goals.

It is 10 games since Van Persie scored his last goal for Manchester United, against Everton at Old Trafford on February 10.

"Robin is playing well," said Van der Sar. "All he is not doing is scoring goals.

"As a striker, all you want to do is score. But he has done his bit during the first and middle portions of the season.

"And he is still one of the best players in the Premier League."
