Wenger lauds Van Persie


Arsene Wenger knows just what an "exceptional" talent he has in Arsenal captain Robin van Persie.

The in-form Dutchman took his tally for 2011 to 30 goals with a brace as the Gunners came from behind to win 2-1 at Norwich on Saturday and maintain their march up the Barclays Premier League table.

And Wenger feels there are few better in the modern game than the Gunners number 10. He said: "Robin has some competitors there but he is one of the best of course."
