Arsenal striker Robin van Persie insists they play a better brand of football than Manchester United.

He told Sport: "You cannot link footballing quality with age. A lot of teams were afraid of the big signings that Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United made but that doesn't interest me one bit - how much these guys earn in a week is totally uninteresting.

"Our players don't drive in the most luxurious cars but, when it comes to our football, we're technically tremendously good.

"Most analysis bases quality on status but we have a good young team without status or years of experience."
