Robin van Persie admits that he is keen to improve his return in front of goal for Manchester United this season.

The striker has scored three goals in nine games for the Red Devils so far this season but says he is disappointed with his return so far.

The 31-year-old’s last goal was the last-gasp equaliser against Chelsea in the Premier League at the end of October.

“Three goals in nine games is not enough,” Van Persie told Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant.

“Against Chelsea I had a nice chance and I had three options: chip it, go round the keeper or just [shoot] straight at the goal. I chose the last and safest.

“If I wouldn’t have thought it over I would just chip it. I just have to trust again in my intuition.”
