Working well together
The two have so far combined to score ten goals this season with Van Persie netting eight in all competitions; six of which are in the league.
-Things are going well and
our understanding is getting better all the time, Van Persie told Manchester
-Everyone could see from day one that we were working well together. We like to play together and we help each other.
-Sometimes Wayne plays at the top, sometimes I do and then he drops in and then you have Danny (Welbeck) coming in from the left sometimes too. I might also go out there for a few minutes in a game or Wazza (Rooney) does. I think it's only the second or third time that we've played in this formation, but the main thing is we've had a good game and got three points,
Rooney has so far scored twice in the league both of which came this past Saturday 20 October 2012 as Manchester United hit Stoke City 4-2 at the Old Trafford.
