As the Daily Mail understands that Arsene Wenger wants his players to give newly crowned Premier League champions Manchester United a guard of honor at the Emirates this Sunday, the club’s supporters threatening to give a hostile reception to the visitors and especially to former Gunner Robin van Persie. Wenger has told his players to reciprocate the respect shown to the Gunners at Highbury by United in 1991. But the Sun understands that fans are preparing to give a horrendous reception to their former player who made the switch to Manchester last summer and will return to the Emirates for the first time and that too with a Champions’ medal.
