Champions Manchester United travel to the Emirates on Sunday with Arsene Wenger confirming Arsenal will form a guard of honour.

The London side will also welcome former striker Robin van Persie back to his old ground for the first time since his big-money move to Old Trafford.
Van Persie sealed United’s latest title triumph with a superb hat-trick on Monday against Aston Villa to rub salt into Arsenal’s wounds.
Arsenal boss Wenger said: “I want the traditions of English football to be respected.
“We respect Robin van Persie like every other player who has left and comes back. I want the player to be respected.
“He is a massive talent with world-class technique and huge experience with the national team and in the Champions League. I had no doubt he’d adapt.
“I think Arsenal had a positive impact on the life and career of Robin van Persie.”
United want to beat Chelsea’s record Premier League points total, meaning the hosts will need to be on top form to advance their UEFA Champions League hopes.
Wenger added: “You always miss a big player, but not we are stabilised. We are on a very strong run. We have a good level of confidence and a great desire.
“What we know is that we will need a great performance to beat Manchester United. That’s what we will focus on.”
