2. Robin van Persie - Goals: 19; in the box: 17

Football News

Robin van Persie scored from his first shot as a Manchester United player after completing his transfer from Arsenal, as the Dutchman converted expertly in the 3-2 win over Fulham at Old Trafford.

It was the first of 17 goals scored by Van Persie from inside the box this season, and arguably the best as he crashed the ball on the half volley past Mark Schwarzer from Patrice Evra's cross.

Van Persie may be frustrated at the lack of goals he has scored from outside the box this season, given his danger from free-kicks with Arsenal, while his two strikes from distance this term came against Manchester City and West Brom.
