Almost there kapitan
Robin van Persie admits he has been pleasantly surprised by the speed of Arsenal's recovery this season
Van Persie has led the way with 16 goals in the top flight and even he has been shocked by the strength of Arsenal's response.
"Maybe a little bit"
"We had to get used to the new players [who signed at the end of August]."
"I have to give lots of credit to Mikel Arteta, Per Mertesacker, Thomas Vermaelen and Yossi Benayoun - great characters, really helpful in every area. When I need assistance, they are always helping me."
"Mikel, for example, played seven years at Everton, two years at Rangers and you can tell he’s an experienced player. Yossi is similar, Per Mertesacker has played close to 80 times for Germany. They have really helped me."
"I just want to help my team, help them with assists and goals and good football,"
"In some games that means holding on to the ball when we are struggling. Football is more for me than scoring, it can give you more than goals. "
"[Against Aston Villa] I gave a nice pass to Aaron, and I enjoy that as much as a goal. I just like to play football."
The secret to my success
Robin van Persie says his magnificent goalscoring form in 2011 is down to two key factors - his fitness and his willingness to take risks.
"I didn't miss one Premier League game [this year], and in most games I played 90 minutes, so when you have a good run and feel fresh and fit you try things,"
"You take a few more risks than perhaps you would when you are coming back from injury. When you don't have a run, you don't really try things. "
"As a striker it is really important to have a go. If you feel like having a chip or cutting the ball instead of shooting [you should do it].
"If you look at my performances, I take more risks now because I know that, with the team I have behind me, I will get more chances. It's not as if I will only get one chance - I always get one, two, three maybe four in a game, so I can take a risk here and there."
"It's a big honour because Thierry is probably the best player Arsenal ever had and to achieve that in a year is really special,” he said. "
"I am really proud but it is not my main target. But as it has happened, of course I am really happy."
