Robin Van Persie, Arsenal

Arsenal 2-1 Norwich

Robin Van Persie Scored His 30th and 31st goals of 2011 v Norwich. 

Robin van Persie believes a Barclays Premier League top-four finish is a realistic target as they recorded a fifth successive victory with a 2-1 win at Norwich.

'We know Norwich away is a tough game and we've seen this season they've been playing really well at times. We knew it would be a hard task but we played well.

'I think we missed a few too many chances and made it a bit difficult for ourselves.

'I should have had at least one more goal. I had four or five chances, I put two in - which is okay but not great, so I have to work on that.

'Our aim is to finish in the top four. I'm confident we can achieve that.'

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger had nothing but praise Van Persie.

'He's exceptional but we all know within the club that he's an exceptional player. Sometimes, what was in the way was the fact he was injured,' he said.

'Since he plays, he shows just how good he is.'

'We have shown our mental strength again today,' he said.

'It's down to team attitude and confidence, as well. There is a good attitude and spirit in the squad.'

Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger is under contract until the summer of 2014.

“I will stay and that is it,” he said.

After Arsenal’s 2-1 win at Norwich, Arsenal’s fifth victory in a row, boss Arsene Wenger said he had full confidence that he will at least see out the two years left of his contract.

‘I am completely committed to the club and I will show you that at the end of the season,’ said the 62-year-old, who has been at the club for 15 years

‘I’m very happy with the players we bought. There is a fantastic spirit in the side and a great attitude. It’s a pleasure to work with the players. I feel we have come back in a stronger position and the team is growing from game to game.’

Wenger hopes to qualify for the Champions League and do well in this season’s other competitions.

‘We have to show that we can go very far, that’s what we don’t know, but we have the desire to.’ he added. ‘We have some way to go to show that this is the right way. That’s why what I wanted to say was we will see at the end of the season how far we can go. I’m very positive but how much do we want to be really successful?

‘That’s what we have to show in the coming months. But I’m positive because I feel the team wants it. For us what is important is we are back in a stronger position, let’s continue to develop because we need to to come back to the top.’
