Van Persie, 29, is convinced United are determined to dominate the Premier League for seasons to come and believes they have the attitude required to do it.

Van Persie scored a hat-trick in the 3-0 win over Aston Villa as United became champions for the 13th time in the Premier League era.

And having spent eight seasons at Arsenal without winning the league, the Netherlands international is determined to make up for lost time by lifting every trophy he can.

The striker said: "From now on, our new standard is we want to be champions every year and we want to win more. So we are even more hungry than we were last season because you could just tell, from day one, everyone wanted this and we did well.

"I want to win it again. I want to win more stuff. I want to win the FA Cup, the Champions League, the Capital One Cup. I want to win it all.

"This is a trophy for all of us - the management, staff, all the players and the fans have been brilliant too. They've been absolutely amazing, cheering us on every single game, home and away, so credit to them as well."
