Arsenal boss Wenger: Van Persie and Man Utd will get our respect

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says Robin van Persie and Manchester United can count on their respect next week. Van Persie could be a title winner when he makes his first appearance in N5 since leaving the Club last summer but Wenger is not convinced that the game will be any easier for his side if the visitors are already champions.

"I don't know, what I want is for us to have a good game and to beat them, it doesn't matter what kind of status they come with," he told arsenal.com.

"We have 63 points and we have four games to go, two at home, two away. Let's go and win the next one, that's all we can do.

"As a champion or not as a champion it [Van Persie's reception] is exactly the same. We will respect the players that have played for us a long time as we always have done and treat them well before and after the game."
