Manchester United striker Robin van Persie says he's excited about returning to Arsenal today.

Arsenal fans are promising a hostile reception for their former hero when champions Manchester United face the North Londoners today.

But RVP, celebrating his first league title win in his debut season with United, told The Sun: “I don’t expect anything less than a lively atmosphere — but it doesn’t hurt.

“I have always respected the Arsenal fans and always will. They love their club so I understand their feelings.

“Players, staff, managers and even directors come and go, but fans will always stick with their team.

“So I am looking forward to playing at the Emirates again. I have good memories there.

“And it will be good to see my old colleagues, staff and friends again.”
