Robin van Persie will start as Manchester United visits the Emirates today for a crucial match for Arsenal and a not-very-crucial match for United.

Here are the lineups:

Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Arteta, Ramsey, Rosicky, Cazorla, Walcott, Podolski.

Subs: Mannone, Vermaelen, Jenkinson, Monreal, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gervinho.

Manchester United: De Gea, Rafael, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Valencia, Carrick, Jones, Nani, Rooney, van Persie.

Subs: Lindegaard, Anderson, Giggs, Hernandez, Cleverley, Kagawa, Buttner.

As predicted, Tomas Rosicky starts, as do Kieran Gibbs and Lukas Podolski (who will nominally be up front, but Arsenal's front three should be quite fluid today.)
