thumbnail Hello,

The Manchester United striker lines up at Old Trafford for the first time against the team he represented for eight years, but how should Gunners supporters greet him?

DEBATE

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie will line up against his former team Arsenal tomorrow for the first time since his £24 million summer move to Old Trafford.

It was certainly a controversial move for the Dutch striker, who was public enemy No.1 for the Gunners fans after announcing that he would not be renewing his contract in July, before eventually joining Sir Alex Ferguson's team in August.

And he has, understandably, been the target of chanting and songs from the fans at the Emirates Stadium, but Arsene Wenger has stated that he wants a "respectful" reaction from the Gunners supporters travelling to Old Trafford, while Sir Alex says he does not think there will be a problem after the eight years of service he gave to the club.

But should the loyal supporters forgive the striker for joining one of their most bitter rivals of the last 15 years? Emmanuel Adebayor was on the end of some vociferous chanting when he joined Manchester City, and nearly caused a riot after he ran the length of the pitch to celebrate in front of Arsenal fans after scoring against the club.
