Robin van Persie was voted man of the match by supporters on Facebook after Manchester United beat Ronald Roeman's Southampton side 2-1 at the St. Mary's Stadium.
The 31-year-old earned a massive 75% of the vote, beating off competition from David de Gea (16%) and Ashley Young (9%), to earn the accolade in a game where United came out with all three points despite a close encounter.
Thanks to some poor defending, Van Persie was able to find the back of the net early into the first-half after getting onto the end of a back pass and placing it low into the net.
The impressive Graziano Pelle hit back for Southampton 20 minutes later, but the Saints couldn't find a reply for United's and Van Persie's second after a Wayne Rooney free-kick found the Dutchman at the back post.
After the game, the man of the match winner felt in a reflective mood, stating the win ''felt like the old days''.
''They [the supporters] were unbelievable. I just want to say that it felt like the old days, like two years ago. It was a really special day, and they were unbelievable,'' Van Persie told MUTV.
''I want to thank them because I know they've been travelling from all over England, maybe some from abroad. It's a long journey. Thanks everyone for coming. You are absolutely amazing.''
After firing United to the title in the 2012-13 season, scoring 26 goals in the full 38 appearances, Van Persie managed just 21 league games last year, accumulating just 12 goals.
This season, similar to last, the Dutchman has had a slow start, netting just six goals in 14 appearances. However, three of his six goals have come in his last three appearances for the club, giving him a good platform to build upon.
The win on Monday night was United's fifth in a row and after languishing near mid-table earlier in the season, they now sit in third and look on course for a top four finish.
