Late rally fires Manchester United to late win

6:57 am on 3 September 2012

Robin van Persie struck twice late on to complete his hat-trick and seal a dramatic 3-2 victory for Manchester United over Southampton in the Premier League.

After missing a penalty with his side down 2-1, he made amends with two pocher's goals in the dying minutes to steal the points.

He also picked up his 100th Premier League goal with his 92nd minute header to win the game.

Elsewhere Arsenal's new signings Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla each picked up maiden goals for the club in a 2-0 victory away to Liverpool.

Newcastle were held 1-1 at home to Aston Villa.
