Wenger praises Van Persie class
- From the section Football
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger pays tribute to Robin van Persie as the Dutch striker's 29th and 30th goals of the season give his side a 2-1 Premier League win over Liverpool at Anfield.
The Frenchman also praises goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny who made a number of important first-half saves, including a double-stop from Dirk Kuyt's penalty - the sixth missed by Liverpool this season.
Wenger explains that it was "precautionary" to take off Mikel Arteta after the Spaniard injured his spine, with the Arsenal manager hoping for "good news from hospital".
