Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hailed striker Robin Van Persie after his performance in the Gunners’ 5-3 win over Chelsea, BBC Sport reports.

The Dutchman scored a hat-trick at Stamford Bridge yesterday and helped fire Arsenal to their eight victory in nine matches. The 28 year old is playing magnificently at the moment and has taken his tally to 28 goals in his last 27 Premier League goals. Wenger has relied on his captain so far this season following the departures of big name players like Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri and Van Persie has definitely delivered to his boss. ‘Robin is on fire at the moment and his class means he is taking advantage of being in a team that wants to attack a lot and create chances’, Wenger said.
