After sitting out Wednesday's defeat against Porto, Robin van Persie is expected to return to Arsène Wenger's team to face Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Ahead of the trip to Teesside the Dutchman spoke to Arsenal TV Online about the Champions League, those two Premier League wins on the spin and the prospect of a visit to the Riverside Stadium.

Robin discussed:

  • the Porto defeat and the draw next Friday
  • his season so far and why there is more to come from him
  • the brace against Chelsea
  • his ‘chocolate leg’
  • Eduardo being better than ever
  • the potential banana skin of Middlesbrough
  • Boro's record against the big teams
