Manchester United striker Robin van Persie was ecstatic after his side's 3-0 win over Aston Villa which confirmed the Premier League title was heading back to Old Trafford. 

This was the Dutchman’s first Premier League success, having never won the title at Arsenal and after his first taste of victory, United’s number 20 seemed eager for more silverware.

Van Persie was instrumental in the success of United this season and last night he completed a 33 minute first-half hat-trick to ease the Red Devils over the finish line. 

Speaking to MUTV after the match Van Persie expressed his pleasure at the title success, stating: "It's a great feeling. I had to wait a long time and I've been thinking and speaking about it with Rio, for example, in the car and he's been telling me: 'Listen, whatever happens, that's the standard.'

"He's right. From now on, our new standard is we want to be champions every year and we want to win more. 

"So we are even more hungry than we were last season because you could just tell, from day one, everyone wanted this and we did well.

"I want to win it again. I want to win more stuff. I want to win the FA Cup, the Champions League, the Capital One Cup. I want to win it all."

Van Persie echoed United’s desire, determination and team cohesion were paramount in winning the trophy back from arch rivals City after last season’s loss on goal difference, as he continued by saying: "This is a trophy for all of us - the management, staff, all the players and the fans have been brilliant too. 

"They've been absolutely amazing, cheering us on every single game, home and away, so credit to them as well."

The Dutchman also looks extremely likely to win the Golden Boot award as he leads the charts at the top of the Premier League with 24 goals - with his nearest rival Luis Suarez set for suspension.
