Van Persie had a goal and an assist during Manchester United's 3-0 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

Van Persie has been in excellent form of late, scoring four goals and assisting on two others in his last four Premier League matches, including three goals in his last two games. With Falcao far from the starting XI, RVP should continue to be deployed in nearly all fantasy formats.

Van Persie warned Liverpool that he is back to his best form and will be again for Sunday's match, according to the Daily Mail.

Van Persie had been criticized for not yet replicating the goal-scoring form he enjoyed last season, but opened the floodgates with two goals last weekend against Southampton. Manchester United has now won their last five games, and the striker feels he has moved past his inconsistency by continuing to play more frequently.

Van Persie scored both of Manchester United's goals during their 2-1 win over Southampton on Monday, moving them to third in the EPL table.

Van Persie has been in excellent form lately, scoring three goals in his last three Premier League matches. With manager Louis van Gaal stating that Falcao is not close to full match fitness, van Persie will likely start Sunday against Liverpool.

Van Persie took three shots, with all on goal, scored a goal and assisted on another during Manchester United's 3-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.

Van Persie was very strong in the 70 minutes he played before giving way to Falcao, as he looks to be in top form heading into the condensed part of the schedule. Wayne Rooney, who van Persie set up for a goal, took a few knocks in the game, so it's possible that RVP could be lining up next to Falcao for Tuesday's match against Stoke City at Old Trafford.

Van Persie will not play in the Netherlands' friendly against Mexico on Wednesday, as he was deemed unfit by manager Guus Hiddink, The Guardian reports.

The issue was described as a "minor injury," with van Persie fully expected to face Latvia on Sunday in a Euro 2016 qualifying match.

Van Persie scored four minutes into stoppage time to salvage a 1-1 draw against Chelsea on Sunday.

Van Persie actually got his head on Didier Drogba's goal early in the first half as well, though with the ball on target he wasn't credited with an own-goal. With Wayne Rooney suspended and Radamel Falcao out with a knock, van Persie was the lone striker Sunday and responded by scoring his third goal in the last five games. Up next is the always exciting Manchester derby at the Etihad.

Van Persie said he sees Manchester United battling in the top four of the table, and returning to the Champions League next season, according to the Daily Mail.

The Dutch striker said that everything the team needs to move back to the top of the table is in place. He added that he believes the team will do it this year, and be back in Europe next season. The striker has scored two goals in his last two matches.

Van Persie scored in the 22nd minute of Manchester United's 2-1 win over West Ham on Saturday.

After starting slowly following a long run at the World Cup, van Persie has now scored in back-to-back matches with Falcao assisting on both of them. With no Champions League action for United, van Persie will get a bit of a midweek rest before taking on Everton next Sunday.
