Robin van Persie scored two goals on Monday night in United’s 2-1 win over Southampton.

United were dominated for most of the game but still the travelling fans outsung the home support throughout the match.

Van Persie has sung the praises of the United fans and thanked them for their support.

They were unbelievable. I just want to say that it felt like the old days – like two years ago. It was a really special day, and they were unbelievable. I want to thank them because I know they’ve been travelling from all over England, maybe some from abroad. It’s a long journey. Thanks everyone for coming – you are absolutely amazing. My first away game against Southampton for United two-and-a-half years ago was a special one, but I think today was a good one as well.
