Robin van Persie Scores Three Goals in First Half To Put Man United On Verge of 20th Title

Robin van Persie has put Manchester United on the verge of their twentieth top flight title by scoring three goals in quick succession against Aston Villa at Old Trafford.

His first goal was scored after an assist from Ryan Giggs and a second assist from Rafael da Silva. That came within the second minute of the match.

And then Aston Villa almost scored through Christian Benteke before Robin van Persie seemingly put the match out of Aston Villa’s reach in the twelfth minute with a superb goal.

Here’s Robin van Persie’s first goal:

And here’s Robin van Persie’s second goal, which is simply exquisite:

Robin van Persie scored his hat trick with this third goal — his third in 32 minutes for United:

Despite the three goals, two of them were questionable based on whether the referee should have blown his whistle for offside. The third goal, especially, looked like it was marginally offside.
