Gunners boss wants striker to better last season's return

Arsene Wenger is hoping Robin van Persie can score at least 25 goals for Arsenal this season.

The Dutchman, who has finally been able to shake of his frustrating injury problems, topped the Gunners' scoring charts last term with 20.

He is hoping to better that tally this time around, with a flying start to the 2009/10 campaign suggesting he is more than capable.

Van Persie already has eight goals to his name this term and Wenger sees no reason why the Holland international cannot go on to provide his best-ever return.

"If you look at the chances he has had since the start of the season you cannot say he won't reach 25 goals," said Arsenal's French coach.

"Robin has taken much more responsibility because he is up front. He has committed himself to the club for a long period and he is at an age, 26, where a footballer becomes really efficient, mature and wants to win things.

"That is why I believe he can be the best passer in the league and the best goalscorer in the league. When you look at the goals he scores they are always impressive."

Shouldn't be a problem as long as he stays fit. Actually, I was hoping for a slightly better return, but meh!

Van Persie has made a good start, and it would be great if he gets 25, but tbh as long as he is contributing in other aspects ie assists ect does it matter how many goals he scores? atm the goals are coming from all positions so if that dries up a bit, then is when i think the pressure will be on.

He'll get it from poaches and strikes when he makes runs into the box... and maybe some penalties if the bloody refs ever give us any now.

Can't see him scoring from a free kick anymore though... (please make me eat my words) The post has felt his fury more than the back of the net from free kicks!

Vermaelen for 25 :)

If he doesn't get injured he'll get there for sure
