Robin Van Persie faces his old club for the first time tomorrow when Man United take on Arsenal at Old Trafford. RVP has knocked in nine goals in the red of United this season and has been an influential signing for Sir Alex Ferguson.

‘He’s proven that with his goals and all-round play since he’s come to the club’.
United are 8/11 to win tomorrow with RVP 4/1 to open the scoring. The Paddy Power Blog is packed full of content to inform your betting ahead of the big game.
