Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel says that United will be the winners of the Premier League this season now that Robin van Persie has signed for the club.

The Dutch international signed for United earlier in the month and then scored on his home debut to help his new side beat Fulham 3-2. "I'm very excited about the season ahead," said Schmeichel in United Review. "And, for me, the signing of Robin van Persie is a real game-changer. "By bringing Robin in, we've shown our intent for the season – we've got the one player everyone wanted and we got him because we can provide a fantastic platform for anyone who has ambitions of winning trophies. "We have gone from being neck and neck with Manchester City to now, in my opinion, being ahead; our squad has greater depth than anyone else in the league."
