RvP hails Rooney pairing

Robin van Persie says his understanding with fellow Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is "getting better all the time."

The duo were both on target in Saturday's 4-2 win over Stoke City at Old Trafford - with the Dutchman also helping to set up both of Rooney's goals with a left-wing cross and later a right-wing corner. Van Persie is thoroughly enjoying his link-up with the England front man and says their ability to interchange positions in the forward areas can only be a positive for the Reds.

"Things are going well and our understanding is getting better all the time," van Persie told MUTV. "Everyone could see from day one that we were working well together. We like to play together and we help each other.

"Sometimes Wayne plays at the top, sometimes I do and then he drops in and then you have Danny coming in from the left sometimes too. I might also go out there for a few minutes in a game or Wazza does. I think it's only the second or third time that we've played in this formation, but the main thing is we've had a good game and got three points."
