Man Utd striker Van Persie hails Welbeck cheeky chip

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie admits his second goal at Swansea City was one he learned from street soccer.

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

"My first goal came from a great pass from Giggsy," he said of the game's opening goal. "I felt at the time that my touch was a little heavy so I had to really go for it and take it as high as possible. The second goal was back to the streets a little bit!"

Asked which was the best, Van Persie was quick to highlight Danny Welbeck's wonderful chip.

"The fourth goal from Welbz was unbelievable as well. So, which goal was best? That will be a close call."
