van Persie Delighted With Porto Response + Hennessey Linked

Arsenal goal hero Robin van Persie was happy to help the Gunners over their Hull disaster with a two-goal salvo in the 4-0 drubbing over Porto.

The north Londoners were back to their free-flowing best as they secured a comprehensive victory in the Champions League yesterday evening.

And a delighted Van Persie said:

“We wanted to bounce back from the Hull game, that was the idea.

“Everybody was really disappointed after losing against Hull. But this was a good day.

“We knew we had to make it up to the fans and make it right.

“We played well and it was a deserved win.”

And despite the nature of Arsenal’s victory, the Dutch striker isn’t reading anything into last nights stunning result.

He continued:

“This is only our second game in the competition. There are still many more games to go. It’s too early to say what it means.”

In other news, Arsene Wenger is reportedly considering a move for Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

The Frenchman has been monitoring the 21-year-old over the past year but with the Championship leaders thought to be holding out for a fee of up to £10million, it is not known whether Wenger would be willing to pay such a hefty price for a number two keeper.

Manuel Almunia would more than likely hold on to the number one jersey, with Hennessey widely considered to be one for the future.

However, with two young stoppers in Lukasz Fabianski and Vito Mannone already waiting in the wings at the club, the Gunners boss may be tempted to pull out of the running, with Everton also thought to be keeping tabs on the youngster.
