The Dutchman, who bagged the championsâ€™ first of the game, was effusive in his appraisal of Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Adnan Januzaj, who all combined to good effect as United secured three crucial points at Old Trafford.
He told manutd.com: â€śIt was a good win because when youâ€™re 2-1 down at home, itâ€™s tough,â€ť van Persie told MUTV. â€śWe knew what we had to do and, thankfully, Wayne managed to score from a corner before we got another great goal from Chicharito.
â€śWayneâ€™s a great player, and itâ€™s always great to play with him,â€ť the Reds forward continued. â€śBut donâ€™t forget Chicharitoâ€™s input; heâ€™s such a great role model to all footballers. He works so hard and he came in today and scored the winner.â€ť
