Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was again grateful to Robin van Persie in last night’s win over Aston Villa.
The Dutch international struck again – this time from the spot – in the 2-1 triumph.
“He keeps going. Of course you always have that question when he plays against Manchester City and then again with that intensity, do I rest him? At the moment he feels alright so I just take a gamble. Now we have a little breather to prepare for our home game and let’s hope we can win then,” said Wenger.
“We have to give credit to Villa tonight, we know they always give us a good reception here. They always make it very difficult for us.”
