Ferguson hopes for van Persie heroics

Sir Alex Ferguson says he is hoping that Robin van Persie can repeat the form that made him so lethal at Arsenal last year.

Van Persie was the league's top scorer and pivotal to Arsenal's eventual third place finish.

"In my experience, and where we are at the moment, we need two strikers to get over 20 goals," said Ferguson on the club's website.

"I would love that to happen. Itís quite remarkable considering heís got seven goals in [his last] seven games. Iím pleased with that and I think his fitness will improve even more."
