Van Persie gives his Man-Of-The-Match award to Szczesny

Although Robin Van Persie deservedly won the Man-of-the-Match award for his two goals yesterday in Arsenal’s brilliant comeback win at Liverpool, the Dutchman thought that Wojciech Szczesny deserved the Champagne Award and handed it to him instead.

Even Arsene Wenger agreed after the game that there was nothing to choose between them. Wenger said: “We had two men of the match today, one at the back and one at the front.”

And Szczesny himself confirmed that Van Persie gave him the award. He said: “Sometimes you make a lot of saves and you end up losing the game so none of your saves matter but today I managed to help my teammates.”

“Robin gave me the champagne at the end of the game, so it was a very good day.”

It was certainly a very good day. Some Arsenal fans may even say it was better than last weeks win against Spurs as it brings us even closer to Third Place!
