Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says his team will hold a guard of honour for Manchester United’s players before Sunday’s match at Emirates Stadium.
The match is the first United have played since sealing their 20th league title with a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Monday.
Wenger said: “I want the traditions of English football to be respected.”
The match sees the return of former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie, who scored a hat-trick against Villa.
Van Persie, 29, scored the opener the last time the two sides met in United’s 2-1 victory in November.
“Van Persie is a massive talent, a world-class player who has fantastic technique and a lot of experience,” Wenger said.
“You always miss a big player. It took us a while because our game went a lot through him but if you look at the number of goals we have scored, it’s similar to last season.”
United gave Arsenal a guard of honour at Highbury in 1991, and honoured champions Chelsea at Old Trafford in 2005. Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea returned the gesture two years later.
