Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has admitted that he wants to contribute more assists to his new team.

Van Persie has seven goals in as many starts since moving to Old Trafford, including a crucial brace in Tuesday's Champions League win against Cluj.

The Dutch striker told ITV Sport that he wants to provide more ammunition for his teammates in upcoming games.

He said: "I think I'm on my way, but I'd like to make more assists. I have seven goals now, but for me as I've said many times it is not all about goals.

"Of course it's about winning but I want to make more assists. Up until now I only gave one so I would like to improve that bit.

"I'm on a good run but it can always be better."

United return to Premier League action this weekend with a trip to face Newcastle United on Sunday, October 7.
