The contest is now over. Congratulations to Helen Jackson for winning the shirt. Thank you for taking part in this contest!

Former Arsenal skipper, Robin van Persie, got off to a blistering start at Old Trafford. He was a Manchester United player for just five days when his first shot for the club got him his first goal. He has since scored 24 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions so far.

To celebrate van Persie’s excellent half-a-season with United, the About ManUtd app in collaboration with the Soccerlens Store brings a competition where you can win RVP’s Manchester United shirt.
