Manchester United manager David Moyes has hailed the talents of Robin van Persie ahead of Monday's big showdown with Chelsea.
Moyes says he has been very impressed with the 30-year-old striker since he took over at Old Trafford in the summer and will hope he continues where he left off last weekend when his side host Jose Mourinho's Blues in the big clash.
The Dutch striker scored two in the opening-weekend win at Swansea and appears to be in the same sort of form that saw him finish as the Premier League's top goalscorer last season.
The United boss is clearly a big fan of the former Arsenal man, saying: "Robin's movement and his understanding of the game with his hold-up play and movement in the box is sensational. It really is top-notch.
"There are some things I don't even know if you can coach, nearly instinctive things that you pick up if you're a top player."
United will be bidding to build on the van Persie-inspired 4-1 victory at the Liberty Stadium but are set to face one of their title rivals in Chelsea, who have begun with two wins out of two, beating Hull City and Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge in the opening week.
It is likely to be a close battle but bearing in Mind Moyes' comments on van Persie, punters might be tempted to use their free bet to back the home side to come out on top.
