van Persie double secures Arsenal victory
A superb brace from striker Robin van Persie gave Arsenal all three points against Wolves and boosted confidence ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Barcelona.
The Gunners took the lead on 16 minutes when skipper Cesc Fabregas floated a cross in from the right hand side and van Persie executed a wonderful volley past ‘keeper Wayne Hennessey. With 56 minutes on the clock, the Dutchman made it 2-0. Fabregas – again the creator – with a perfectly weighted pass from the deep leaving Theo Walcott and van Persie with a two-on-one against Christophe Berra.
The England winger did his job, rolling the ball to his team-mate who now has his fourth goal in two matches.
