Manager Arsene Wenger praises the "special" talents of Robin van Persie as Arsenal beat Sunderland 2-1.
The 28-year-old finished from Gervinho's pass after just 29 seconds - the fastest Premier League goal this season - before Sebastian Larsson curled home a free kick to level things. The Dutch striker responded in the 82nd minute with his own stunning freekick to seal victory.
The win sees the Gunners up to 10th in the table following a difficult start to their Premier League season.
