You had to know it was going to happen.

On his return to the Emirates Stadium, Robin van Persie scored against his old club Arsenal on Sunday with a brilliantly-taken penalty kick to tie the game 1-1 at half-time between Arsenal and Manchester United.

Late in the first half, with van Persie storming into the Arsenal penalty area, defender Bacary Sagna attempted to tackle the ball away from the Dutch striker, but he ended up knocking van Persie to the ground before he touched the ball.

Up stepped Robin van Persie to score for Manchester United against Arsenal.

Here’s the video highlight of the incident and goal:
