When Robin Van Persie signed for United last summer few would have expected him to return to the Emirates as a league champion. He did so, and scored in the process, as United ground out a 1-1 draw result, which slightly derails Arsenal's aspirations of a top-four finish. After a guard of honour respectfully acknowledged [.

The moment Robin Van Persie left Arsenal in the summer, this fixture was immediately circled in red on many Arsenal fans'calendars. The Dutchman will probably be subjected to a feisty atmosphere upon his return to the Emirates, but the reception shouldn't daunt him one bit for he's proved he was right in leaving N5 for [.

United look cracking value at 3.3 with bet365 and Betfred to beat Arsenal at the Emirates. Sir Alex's side, who clinched their 20th league title earlier in the week with four games to go by beating Aston Villa 3-0, have a good record against the Gunners. They have won six and lost one of the [...]

As the dust began to momentarily settle after Monday night's triumph, the thoughts of many Reds have turned to the transfer window. Yes, there are another four games to win to finish the season in style, and the thought of Robin Van Persie receiving a guard honour on Sunday is a very tantalising one, but [.

RVP delivers number 20

Red Rants at related • 0 views
At some stage, throughout his career, Robin Van Persie must have dreamt to score a title-clinching goal. Tonight he made up for the time he wasted fighting for fourth place down in North London, by netting not one but all the three goals that delivered United their 20th league title with four games to go.

A Monday night game against Aston Villa wouldn't normally set the pulse racing, but tonight's match is an altogether different proposition. Three points against Paul Lambert's men will clinch United's 20th league title with four games to go, an impressive achievement despite the critics Sir Alex's troops have been subject to since August.

United are a top priced 1.25 with bet365 and Betfred to beat Aston Villa at Old Trafford, and everything suggests they are bankers to do just that.

To paraphrase Henry B. Adams, it might be impossible to underrate human intelligence, but it's definitely possible to underrate footballing intelligence, particularly the one that Michael Carrick has abundantly shown since joining Manchester United. The 31-year-old might be about to finally receive some recognition for his individual efforts, after being shortlisted for the PFA's Footballer [.

One down, six to go as RVP rescues United

Red Rants at related • 0 views
In the end it wasn't quite the leap towards the title United fans had hoped their team would take tonight, but Sir Alex Ferguson's men are a point closer to a 20th league title and, considering the abysmal performance they treated the traveling supporters to in the first hour, they can be satisfied with that.

West Ham are luxuriating in the comfort of mid table, neither worrying by relegation nor threatening a late assault on the European places. Whilst this winding down has been a massive positive for West Ham fans, it has been anti-climatic for [.

Another Monday night derby presenting United with the chance to hammer the final nail in City's coffin, only for them to relinquish the opportunity, and having their limits prominently exposed.

Pre-season, this derby was billed as the season defining game for both teams. The title race would be so close again that only a gnat's breath would be able to separate them.
