Van Persie: Arsenal should never have lost at Blackburn – Not in a million years!

The Arsenal captain Robin Van Persie has seen his team lose eight games already this season, but it was the devastating 4-3 defeat to Blackburn at Ewood Park back in September that he finds the hardest to come to terms with, even though five months have passed since then.

Van Persie said: “The game against Blackburn is a vital one in which to get our league form back on track. There’s also something we have to put right – our defeat up there in September was something that shouldn’t have happened in a million years.
