Robin van Persie once again underlined his value to Manchester United as a double strike helped the Red Devils cruise to a 4-0 win over Wigan at the DW Stadium.
Although Javier Hernandez also managed a smartly-taken double as United preserved their seven-point lead at the top, it was Van Persie who stamped his class on proceedings.
His 18th goal of the season was one of his best, calmly stepping inside Ivan Ramis before firing into the corner with his supposedly weaker right-foot. And as he tapped Danny Welbeck's square ball into an empty net in stoppage time, it means Van Persie has now scored eight goals in his last eight games.
