Gunners will applaud RVP and teammates onto the Emirates pitch on Sunday.
Arsenal will give Robin van Persie a guard of honour of his return to the Emirates with newly-crowned Premier League champions Manchester United, reports the Evening Standard.
A hattrick from the Dutchman saw United claim their 20th top-flight title with a 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Monday.
It is understood that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will confirm to the media on Friday morning that his players will give United’s champions, including the returning former Arsenal captain, a traditional guard of honour onto the pitch, ahead of the clash.
Van Persie left north London in a £24m deal last summer and scored against the Gunners in the Premier League fixture at Old Trafford last year.
The 29-year-old’s treble against Villa took him to the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts with 24 on the eve of his first appearance at his former club.
While United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has stressed he wants to claim a record Premier League points haul, Arsenal know that defeat could be costly in their quest for a place in the top four and Champions League football next season.
United formed a guard of honour for Arsenal at Highbury in 1991 and did the same in 2005 for Chelsea, who returned the gesture two years later.
