PICTURE SPECIAL: Nemesis Van Persie’s pain as Newcastle end Man United hoodoo

Waiting for Video...

ROBIN Van Persie has become a player that Newcastle United fans love to hate – so pictures of his pain after Saturday’s game will delight the Toon Army.

Newcastle ended a 41-year wait for a win at Old Trafford when they beat Manchester United 1-0 at the weekend, thanks to Yohan Cabaye’s goal.

Van Persie was denied by felloow Dutchman Tim Krul – who he has had a number of run ins over the years – as the Magpies recorded another clean sheet.

For all the reaction and best action pictures from the game, including David Moyes wrestling with Hatem Ben Arfa, watch our special slideshow.
