Robin van Persie wins Goal of the Week for his cool finish that opened the scoring against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

Arsenal's in-form marksman silenced the home support just five minutes in when Andrey Arshavin's pass carved opened up Swansea's defence and the Dutchman checked before firing past Steven Caulker and goalkeeper Michel Vorm from a tight angle for his 22nd goal of the season.

The Gunners' skipper received with 20% of the 3500 votes, narrowly beating Paul Scholes' opener in his home comeback game at Old Trafford which received 18%.

Third place was Danny Graham's winning strike against Arsenal - a neat finish after latching on to a Gylfi Sigurdsson through-ball less than one minute after Theo Walcott had equalised for the away side.
