Wayne Rooney has heaped praise on Manchester United striker Robin van Persie.

Manchester United duo Rooney and Van Persie have been in sensational form for the Premier League champions, scoring 17 goals for David Moyes' side so far this season.

Their early season form was epitomised on Sunday when they combined to give their side the win over Arsenal, as Van Persie latched onto Rooney's first-half corner.

Despite their recent success and outstanding start to the season, Rooney believes there is more to come from this season's in-form double act.

Rooney, speaking to United Review, said on their strike partnership: "I think that’s the main thing for any forward, you’re trying to work together to score and create goals," he told United Review.

"It’s great for the team if myself and Robin can create chances for each other and score goals that are helping us to win matches.

"It’s really enjoyable for us as players to play that way. We’re both creative players and I think that’s why we’re working well.

"We’ve started the season in good form, but we’re always looking to be better on the pitch."

Rooney also revealed his delight at the way his side have bounced back from their poor start to the season.

The 28-year-old striker believes Manchester United, who had lost three of their opening six Premier League games but have since recovered to win six of their last eight, were always going to struggle during the first couple of months under Moyes.

"We’ve played better in the last few games than we have all season and it was always going to be the case with a new manager coming in, that we’re taking his ideas onto the pitch," he added.

"We’re finally finding our feet now and putting into the games exactly what the manager wants us to.

"I’m really pleased with that and we’re on a good run at the minute and I think November and December are two really big months for us.

"We’ve got a lot of games coming up and we want to get through these two months with some good results."
