Robin van Persie will have gained vital confidence from his strike against Chelsea, according to Andy Cole.
The Red Devils forward scored a stoppage-time strike to cancel out Didier Drogba’s opener in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Van Persie, 31, has endured a tough start to the season following a demanding World Cup, netting three goals in eight Premier League appearances.
And United legend Cole believes Van Persie’s equaliser will be a big plus for the Dutchman ahead of Sunday’s Manchester derby.
“Robin’s a quality player and no doubt that will give him a bit more confidence,” Cole told Manchester Evening News.
“It’s been a tough start, not just for Robin, but for the team.
“Robin’s performance against Chelsea was very good, maybe his best performance of the season so far. It’ll be a big plus for him to get a goal against Chelsea will be a big boost.”
