Van Persie talks up Rooney partnership

Robin van Persie has claimed that there is much more to come from his burgeoning partnership with new Manchester United team-mate Wayne Rooney.

• Blog: Trio too hot to handle

Van Persie, 29, joined United in a controversial summer move for around £24 million from Arsenal. But he has only played with Rooney three times so far this season due to injury and fitness issues between them.

Now both strikers are fully fit, the Dutchman is keen to show that they can work as a strike pairing and build on their fine performance in the 4-2 win at Stoke where they both got on the scoresheet and were credited with assists for three of United's goals.

"We are definitely getting more of an understanding," Van Persie said. "We like to play together and work well together. It is only the second or third time we have played in this formation but offensively and defensively, we help each other out.

"We do look exciting going forward. We can score all sorts of goals from many different angles. That is a good sign and should be a real weapon for us as the season goes on."

Van Persie has enjoyed a fine start to life with his new club and has netted six goals from eight games, bagging three assists as well.
