Van Persie scored 30 goals for the Gunners during the 2011/12 campaign to finish as the league’s top scorer before making the move to Manchester United that summer.
He added another Golden Boot award as well as a Premier League winners' medal during his first season at Old Trafford, with his goals proving crucial in delivering the Red Devils the title in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season as manager.
Despite suffering his fair share of injury setbacks, Van Persie still managed to find the net an impressive 144 times in 280 appearances in the competition.
