Sunderland boss O'Neill: Van Persie making difference for Man Utd

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill was full of praise for Robin van Persie after defeat at Manchester United.

Van Persie scored his 15th goal of the campaign as United recorded a 3-1 win.

"Robin van Persie was a great purchase," said O'Neill.

"It means Manchester United are capable of scoring goals because Wayne Rooney is a top quality player as well. Whilst their main players stay fit Manchester United are capable of winning the league."
