Robin van Persie

Van Persie became one of the Premier League’s most prolific strikers in his spells at Arsenal and Manchester United 

The Dutchman moved to Arsenal in 2004 as a second forward but quickly became the club's main striker following the departure of Henry.

After finishing the 2011/12 season as the Premier League's top scorer with 30 goals, he moved to Old Trafford and immediately won another Golden Boot, firing Man Utd to the title.

To date he is one of only six players to be the league's top scorer in successive seasons.
