Sydney: Manchester United boss David Moyes on Friday said that he hopes Robin van Persie will have as big an impact in the new English Premier League season as he did in his spectacular debut year.

The Dutch international striker was a huge hit at Old Trafford last season after switching from Arsenal and was the Golden Boot winner in England's top flight, banging in a total of 30 goals in 48 appearances.

Moyes, who has taken charge of Manchester United after the retirement of 13-time EPL-winning manager Alex Ferguson, said he was excited about having van Persie in his lineup when the new season kicks off against Swansea City on August 17.
