Tottenham ace Van der Vaart: I've told Arsenal's Van Persie to ease up!

Tottenham star Rafael van der Vaart admits he's urging Robin van Persie to stop scoring for Arsenal! Van der Vaart has revealed he bombards Arsenal rival and fellow Dutchman Van Persie with texts, pleading with him to end his sensational run.

Van der Vaart said: "I text him every game. Sometimes I say congratulations but I hope he is not going to continue scoring like he does because it might be a problem for us.

"On Saturday he scored three nice goals against Chelsea and, yes, it looks like a rivalry between him and me. But I really enjoy his game."
