Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has lavished praise on striker Robin Van Persie after the Dutchman came to The Gunners’ rescue again, with a brilliant volleyed winner against Everton.

The skipper has netted 14 goals in his last 11 Arsenal games and proved to be the difference again against The Toffees.

And Wenger is lost for words when it comes to praising Van Persie’s latest exploits.

“You [the media] will say we are van Persie dependent!

“Today he got us a goal which was at the moment of the game where we struggled a little bit to create chances. He delivered something special and three important points.

“I feel Robin has scored an exceptional goal, he said himself he was not in his best of days, but what is important is that you are efficient. That is what it is to be professional, when you do not feel the greatest.

“I must give credit to Song as well, who gave a fantastic ball.”
