Robin van Persie is the textbook centre-forward, according to Manchester United team-mate Nemanja Vidic.

The Dutchman came off the bench to net a sublime equaliser in stoppage time against West Ham as United salvaged a 2-2 draw from a thrilling FA Cup third-round tie at Upton Park. It was Van Persie's 20th goal since joining from Arsenal in a £24million summer deal, converting a fine crossfield pass from fellow substitute Ryan Giggs to force a replay.

"His touch is magnificent and his finishing is top class," Vidic said on MUTV. "It is movement from the book, touch from the book, goal from the book. It is something they can show to kids, how to move and finish in the last third."
