Robin van Persie wants to win double in first Manchester United season
London: Robin Van Persie has set his sights on marking his brilliant first season at Manchester United by winning the Double.
The last time the Red Devils lifted the league and FA Cup in the same season was when they famously scooped the Treble back in 1999.
Van Persie, who left Arsenal last summer in a bid to win silverware, said they want the Double, and it is important as it has been a while since they won it.
If United can beat Chelsea in their cup quarter-final replay at Stamford Bridge on Monday, then they will fancy their chances of ending that 14-year wait.
Van Persie said they have a big chance of reaching the semi-final of the Cup against City. He said Chelsea will be a big test, but is confident of getting the result.
