Van Persie was booed by Arsenal fans during the clash in Manchester earlier this season.

But Wenger said: "We will respect the players that have played for us a long time as we always have done and treat them well before and after the game.

"As a champion or not as a champion it is exactly the same.

"What I want is for us to have a good game and to beat them, it doesn't matter what kind if status they come with."
