Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is acutely aware of how important tonight's return to the Red Devils is and is highly motivated to score against the Gunners in a fourth successive Premier League match, according to former Red Devils striker Louis Saha.

Van Persie has faced Arsenal three times since completing a controversial switch to Old Trafford 2012 and scored on all three occasions, including the winning goal in a 1-0 victory over the title contenders last November.

The Dutch striker celebrated that decisive strike with relish and Saha believes he will have no problem with pouring scorn on Arsene Wenger's title bid again by netting this evening.

Saha thinks that Van Persie still has an insight on Arsenal's weaknesses and will look to use them to his advantage tonight, before backing the veteran to manage a second return to the Emirates in style.
