Van Persie: Manchester United can score from anywhere

Robin van Persie says Manchester United's ability to score from 'any angle' makes them a frightening prospect when going forward, after the Red Devils plundered four goals against Stoke on Saturday.

With Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez at the disposal of Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United have one of the most fearsome attacking line-ups in the Premier League.

Ferguson had the luxury of starting with three of the above - Van Persie, Rooney and Welbeck - in the defeat of the Potters, with each of these forwards finding the net in a 4-1 win.

Furthermore, Van Persie and Rooney both provided assists with pinpoint crosses, as United highlighted an ability to break down defences in a variety of ways.

Van Persie has added an extra dimension to Manchester United since he joined the club from Arsenal in August, and believes the club continue to demonstrate that they are a threat from any position in the final third.

"We can score from any angle," Van Persie told MUTV.

"The first one against Stoke was from a cross from the left and a good header, the second was from a low cross, the third came from a cross again from the opposite side [to the first] and then the fourth goal came from a corner, so we've scored all sorts of different goals.

"In previous games as well we've shown we can score from every sort of angle which is a good sign and a good weapon for us."
