Arsenal players upset having to give RvP's Man Utd guard of honour

Arsenal players are reluctant to give Manchester United a 'guard of honour' as champions this weekend.

The Daily Mail says Arsenal players are expected to give newly crowned champions Manchester United — and their former captain, Robin van Persie — a guard of honour when they meet at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

A guard of honour is a tradition in games involving teams who have just won the title. Privately, a number of Arsenal players have expressed objections towards the gesture, particularly in front of their own supporters, but it is understood it will still go ahead.

Should Arsenal players maintain the tradition? Or give it a swerve? Give us your shout below...
