Pics: Even at Arsenal

Photographers trained their lenses on 22 players - but one in particular - as Manchester United took to the field for the first time since becoming the 2012/13 Barclays Premier League champions.

Robin van Persie's return to the Emirates Stadium to face his former employers Arsenal was the biggest story in what would have been a bigger game had the Reds not wrapped up the 20th title with time to spare.

There was still plenty for both sides to play for, however, with the Gunners looking to cement third place in the push for Champions League qualification and United needing a win to stay on course for a Premier League points record.

In the end, both sides had to settle for a draw - and an exciting draw at that, with the match played at a terrific tempo and that man van Persie cancelling out Theo Walcott's second-minute opener with a penalty just before half-time to make the final score 1-1.

The Reds' official photographers John Peters and Matt Peters were there as usual to capture the action. You can browse their pics, as well as some from their Getty Images colleagues, in our match gallery on this page.
