"We have to look at it game by game but everybody wants to be champions. I feel that I'm surrounded by champions,"
he told MUTV
following the Wigan victory.
Emphatic result pleases Ferguson
The three points ensured Sir Alex Ferguson's side maintained their seven-point advantage over rivals and defending Premier League champions Manchester City.
Van Persie, who joined United in a £24m deal in August, revealed the hunger within the side to regain the title they lost on goal difference to City.
"This is a special team,"
he told MUTV.
"Everybody wants to help each other. Everybody's keen for everyone to score. Defenders are working their socks off for the midfielders, the midfielders are working for the strikers... everybody wants to run and everybody has one target in their mind.
"They know how to win and that makes it really easy for me."
United manager Ferguson said he knew Van Persie would make a big impact this season.
