Manchester United striker in apparently far better mood than when he was last pictured in United colours.

Manchester United man looks in much improved spirits than when hooked early against West Brom, as the above training ground photo shows.
The Dutchman, regularly linked with a summer transfer away from Old Trafford, is likely to start for the Red Devils at the weekend in the must-win game over rivals Liverpool.
Van Persie struck a winner at Anfield last season from the penalty spot, a moment he described afterwards as one of the most nerve-racking of his career.
After looking glum when he was substituted against the Baggies last time out, his positive attitude is going to be essential if United are to score a win to derail their rivals' title challenge and give supporters a moment to cheer amid a miserable season.
