Van Persie nets double at Norwich

Published Add your comment

Robin van Persie hit a brace as Arsenal came from behind to beat Norwich 2-1 at Carrow Road and record a fifth straight Barclays Premier League win.

The in-form Dutchman made it 30 goals for 2011, the second a sublime finish after the Canaries had snatched a shock early lead when Wales striker Steve Morison capitalised on a blunder by German international Per Mertesacker.

Fired by van Persie's goals, Arsene Wenger's side are now transformed from the shambles of the start of the campaign as they closed to within striking distance of the top four.
