14:48 I caught up with Andy Cole and Lee Sharpe earlier at Old Trafford to get their thoughts on the latest title triumph, van Persie's contribution to the season and the future ahead for the current squad. Look out for the video interview with both on the site next week. (GT)

12:30 Here are the main points from Sir Alex's press conference:
- On the injury front, the boss says there are “a few bumps and bruises” from Monday’s title-clinching game against Aston Villa, but hopes they are nothing serious.
- Sir Alex believes United “have a duty” to the clubs chasing a Champions League place to perform at their best in the remaining games, starting with Arsenal on Sunday.
- He hopes to pick a strong side because he expects a tough encounter at the Emirates Stadium against an Arsenal team who are “still playing some of the most attractive football in the league”.
- Sir Alex reckons Arsenal have been United's biggest rivals for the last 20 years. The rivalry with the Gunners and Chelsea “will give the next two games an edge”.
