Robin van Persie’s equaliser against Chelsea could change his fortunes

by Sam Peoples

Robin van Persie rescued a point for Manchester United against Chelsea with a dramatic last minute equaliser today and you could see how much it meant to the Dutchman with his passionate celebration.

The striker lashed home the dramatic goal with the last chance of the game and was mobbed by his United team-mates who bundled together to celebrate.

It might have been an equaliser but it will feel like a winner for the players in what was the toughest game of the season.

For Van Persie, it will hopefully be a season changing moment. During the game he had plenty of chances and failed to take them but he delivered right at the end when it mattered the most.

His celebration was also a release of the pent up frustration after a poor start to the campaign. We all know form is temporary and class is permanent, so now Van Persie has to kick on and show his 2012/13 form again.
