Adnan Januzaj put Patrice Evra through on goal and Marouane Chamakh brought him down earning Manchester United a penalty.

Robin van Persie confidently walked up to the spot and lashed home the spot kick to put United ahead. After knocking on the door all day, United finally found a breakthrough.

The goal will be great for the confidence of Van Persie as well because he hasn’t been in the best of form and as with any striker, scoring a goal of any sort is the best way to rejuvenate self-belief.
