Van Persie: So easy playing with these Man Utd champions

Manchester United's two-goal Robin van Persie deflected praise to teammates after victory at Wigan Athletic. The Dutch striker netted his 18th and 19th goals of the season in the Reds' 4-0 win at Wigan.

"This is a special team," he told MUTV. "Everybody wants to help each other. Everybody's keen for everyone to score. Defenders are working their socks off for the midfielders, the midfielders are working for the strikers... everybody wants to run and everybody has one target in their mind.

"We have to look at it game by game but everybody wants to be champions. I feel that I'm surrounded by champions. They know how to win and that makes it really easy for me."
