The Dutchman, who bagged the champions' 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: "It was a good win because when you're 2-1 down at home, it's tough," van Persie told MUTV. "We knew what we had to do and, thankfully, Wayne managed to score from a corner before we got another great goal from Chicharito.
"Wayne's a great player, and it's always great to play with him," the Reds forward continued. "But don't forget Chicharito's input; he's such a great role model to all footballers. He works so hard and he came in today and scored the winner."
