Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny is looking forward to facing Manchester United striker Robin van Persie.

Van Persie helped Koscielny settle at Arsenal last season as club captain.

"I hope we can keep Robin quiet," said the France international.

"Robin is a great player. I enjoyed the time I played with him. It will be a tough game for the whole team, but we play at home and will try to get the three points. It will be a nice match against a great team."
