Van Persie the man who deserves real praise, not United stars

Javier Hernandez and Dimitar Berbatov have attracted plenty of praise for their cutting edge in front of goal this season. With Manchester United having all but tied up the Premier League title, it's easy to see why the duo have been the subject of overly enthusiastic praise. However, when it comes to admiring the effectiveness of Premier League strikers this season, it's worth looking further south than Manchester, North London to be precise.

Robin van Persie seems to fly quietly under the radar, sendings off against Barcelona aside, but since making a long-awaited return from injury for the Gunners earlier this season, he has wasted no time in simply getting the job done in front of goal. In fact, the striker has scored a total of 16 Premier League goals this season, with those goals coming in under 1600 minutes of league action. With those stats averaging out at one goal every 99 minutes, his figures compare favourably to those of Berbatov and Hernandez. Those who have downloaded the Betfair Blackberry app may have noticed this.

With Van Persie also managing to score in the Gunners' last eight league away games, the question that surely arises is precisely how Arsenal would have fared had they been able to rely upon a fully fit Van Persie for the duration of the season along with their best players in all positions on the pitch also fit and raring to go. Those who visit a mobile betting site before next season should bear this in mind.

If Van Persie, Thomas Vermaelen, and Cesc Fabregas, should he stick around for another season, can manage to go an entire league campaign without injury during 2011/2012, improving the quality and experience by just a couple of small yet crucial notches throughout the Gunners' formation, then perhaps Arsenal fans will find that the answer to their current problems doesn't lie in wholesale changes throughout the squad after all.

This site goes right into my favourites. Hope we sign Defoe, ship denilson, bendtner, let Cesc go if he is going to play like the last season, buy back up for Song and of course SAMBA !
