Alex Song hailed Robin Van Persie's 'unbelievable' form after the captain fired Arsenal to a 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund and into the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds.
Dutchman Van Persie has already scored 17 goals in all competitions this season, including four in Europe to help the Gunners reach the last 16 as Group F winners.
Song, whose superb assist set up the skipper's opening goal on Wednesday night, is in awe of the striker's form this term.
"It's unbelievable. He's a very good player," Song told Sky Sports HD2.
"I'm very happy to play with him, that's a pleasure. He's very important and I hope he doesn't get injured because we know when he's injured it's difficult for us.
"We need to keep him in good form."
A win seemed unlikely for the home side after Dortmund dominated the first half, but they faded in the second period before pulling one back in injury time through Shinji Kagawa.
Cameroonian Song said: "We took our time to get going, it was not easy but in the end it was really good and we got the result. We wanted to do well today so we're really happy.
"We showed good character."
