Robin van Persie credits his goal scoring form for the way he has been welcomed at Manchester United.

Van Persie has made an instant impact for United and has now scored four goals from just three appearances for the club, a statistic that he attributes to the welcome he has received at Old Trafford.

"I have to thank everyone, it is a great club and everyone has been very helpful. I have only been here for two weeks but I feel very welcome," the 29-year-old said after victory at Southampton.

"The players, the staff and everyone who is involved with United have made me feel welcome and they all want to help. They all appreciate that I'm there and that feeling is likewise."
