How Does Robin Van Persie Compare to Manchester United's 19 Best Strikers?

Robin van Persie joined Manchester United on the back of winning the Premier League Golden Boot, as well as being named PFA and FWA Player of the Year. For all the individual accolades he has collected during his career, he's barely won any trophies, with his last before moving to Manchester coming when he was just 21 in the 2005 FA Cup final against United. 

In his first season in Manchester, Van Persie scored 30 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions. But after so many barren years with Arsenal, it was the Premier League title he was after, and his goals made that record-breaking 20th title win possible.

This season he has scored 14 goals in 20 games but there won't be any silverware for him, unless United somehow manage to pull off the miraculous and win the Champions League.  

In terms of technical ability alone, aside from the number of goals he contributes, he's one of the most talented players the club has ever seen. He joins a long list of top United strikers but where does he rank amongst them? Judging on goals scored, trophies won, affinity with the fans, longevity of career and general contribution to the team, here are United's top 20 strikers.
