Robin van Persie‘s indifferent form continued with another pedestrian performance away to Arsenal last week in a game many expected the Van Persie of old to return, given his emotional attachment to the fixture.
Manchester United fans have been very patient with Van Persie because there’s no doubting his class but at the moment, form is far from temporary. This is how Van Persie has played all year.
We posed a question to our readers to see who they want to start against Hull between James Wilson and Robin van Persie. The results are overwhelmingly in favour of the 19-year-old getting his first start under Louis van Gaal.
At home to Hull is a perfect game for Wilson to come into. After all, he did score a brace against them last year on his full debut for the club.
Van Persie needs to take a look at himself and figure out what is wrong. Van Gaal has insisted he doesn’t play anybody unless they are 100% fit which means it is simply down to Van Persie.
Maybe the Dutchman has got too complacent of his place in the side, so Wilson’s introduction could give him the wake up call he needs.
