Manchester United striker Robin van Persie perfectly summed up the feeling shared by everyone connected to Old Trafford with his hilarious Instagram post in the aftermath of Sunday's goalless draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Red Devils talisman cut a frustrated figure at White Hart Lane yesterday after missing a couple of glorious opportunities to break the deadlock in north London, during a first-half display which saw the visitors do everything but get on the scoresheet.

After the interval it was a much more even encounter as Mauricio Pochettino's side limited Manchester United to very few chances, with Van Persie failing to make his presence count at the focal point of attack.

Taking to social media the Holland international admitted it was "one of those days", as Louis van Gaal was forced to settle for a point which keeps his team in third place in the Premier League table following the 0-0 draw.

Van Persie and fit-again strike partner Radamel Falcao will be looking to redeem themselves when Manchester United take on Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on New Year's Day, as they look to extend their run of nine games without defeat since losing 1-0 to local rivals Manchester City on November 2.

The 31-year-old has come into criticism following a series of under-par performances for the Red Devils this term, with many detractors believing the Dutchman is past his best and on an unavoidable downward spiral as he enters the latter stages of his career.

But, despite his struggles it's good to see that Van Persie hasn't lost his sense of humour, judging by the latest social media message uploaded after the lunchtime kick-off over the weekend.

However, irrespective of the former Arsenal man's inconsistent form at the Theatre of Dreams these past 12 months it looks as though he still has the faith of his manager, particularly with captain Wayne Rooney now being deployed in a central midfield role.
