Wenger praises top Gunner Robin
Published : 06 Nov 2009 09:30:36Rss feed
The Dutchman has looked in top form in the Gunners' impressive start to the campaign. After putting a succession of injuries behind him, van Persie is showing the type of form that has drawn favourable comparisons with rival forwards. Wenger feels van Persie's all-round play, his ability to create as well as score goals, gives him the edge over the likes of Didier Drogba, Fernando Torres and Wayne Rooney. "For me Robin is the best striker in the league at the moment, because he is a great link player, and that's what I like first," said Wenger. "We play a collective game so it's very important that the target man in our team links well with our other players. "I wouldn't swap him for anyone. He knows how we play, we play together for four or five years now with all the team and everybody knows the movement of each other. "He has adapted to our style and is suited to our style, like (Didier) Drogba is suited to the Chelsea style. "I have a huge respect for Drogba, he is a top class player, he is a fighter, he scores in the big games. In every single big game he scores. I know what kind of player he is." Wolves v Arsenal.
