Video: RvP in December

Robin van Persie picked up our latest Player of the Month award earlier this week after an influential December for United.

The Dutch marksman hit five goals in six appearances over the month, against Reading, Man City, Sunderland, Newcastle and West Brom.

He also set up goals for Patrice Evra at Swansea and Wayne Rooney against Sunderland in the final month of 2012, and his all-round game continues to impress.

After starting the new year in the same vein with a double at Wigan, the 29-year-old is on a run of eight goals in eight games – and long may it continue as United hunt silverware at home and abroad.

Watch our free video looking back over RvP’s goalscoring contribution in December.
