Robin van Persie set a new Club record when he scored against Queens Park Rangers on New Year's Eve.

The captain converted Andrey Arshavin's pass to secure a 1-0 win and in doing so registered his 35th Premier League goal of 2011.

That eclipsed Thierry Henry, who scored 34 times in the top flight in 2004.

Alan Shearer holds the Premier League record for goals in a calendar year, with 36.
