Manchester United striker Robin van Persie now sits on 20 goals in all competitions.

The Dutchman, voted United's player of the month for December after scoring five goals in their six league games over the period, was keen to thank Red Devils fans for the support they have given him.

"It's always nice to be recognised by the fans," Van Persie told manutd.com.

"I have settled into the club quite quickly and I am really enjoying playing in this team. I would like to thank the fans for all their support.

"It's not all about scoring goals, but obviously that does help. It's great that so many players have scored goals over the season so far.

"December is always a difficult month and I feel we have come through this period as we wanted to and hopefully we can now push on for the rest of the season."
