Robin van Persie scored twice as Manchester United belied a slipshod performance to win 2-1 at Southampton Monday and claim third place in the Premier League.The Portuguese defender, who was making his 200th Southampton appearance, played a blind back-pass toward goalkeeper Fraser Forster and Van Persie nipped in to roll home his fifth goal of the season.De Gea was forced to block when Long met Tadic's floated cross with a downward header, while Pelle then screwed a shot over the bar from a Tadic pass after Marcos Rojo became the umpteenth United player to lose possession.Back in the team after a knee injury, Rooney swung a free-kick toward the back post from deep on the left and Van Persie ghosted in to stab an improvised volley past Forster.
