Robin van Persie has made a great start to his Manchester United career, having already notched seven goals in all competitions since his £24 million move from Arsenal during the summer.

And though he has featured much less frequently, fellow Dutch arrival, Alexander Buttner has also enjoyed a decent start, helping himself to a goal and an assist on his Premier League debut against Wigan Athletic.
