Manchester United's van Persie celebrates his goal against West Ham United during their English Premier League soccer match in Manchester
Robin Van Persie is just 6/4 to score without celebrating against Arsenal according to online bookmakers.

The bookies expect the former Arsenal striker to stay calm should he find the back of the net in the game as oppose to kissing the badge at 10/1 while it’s 16/1 he misses a penalty for the second game running.

The Dutch striker can be backed at 9/2 to outscore Arsenal entirely while it’s 6/1 teammate Rooney does the same. Rooney is a far shorter price for badge-kissing at 4/1.

Arsenal head into the match as joint second favourites for the title at 11/4 with United out to 7/1.
