Robin van Persie and his Manchester United teammates will be feeling somewhat sorry for themselves following the humiliation dished out by Leicester City on Sunday, and the striker’s mood will not have been improved after he was mocked by former Arsenal teammate Tomas Rosicky.

Van Persie opened the scoring at the King Power Stadium as Manchester United cruised into a 3-1 lead, but the wheels came off in the final half hour as Leicester netted four times without reply to record a stunning triumph.

It was a memorable turnaround that will have provided joy for all other fans in the Premier League and, it would appear, some rival players revelled in the demise of Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United side.

Mario Balotelli tweeted his satisfaction at the result, something that resulted in some abhorrent abuse of the Liverpool striker, while Rosicky too was able to raise a smile as a shell-shocked Manchester United were ripped apart by their newly-promoted opposition.

Rosicky posted a picture of himself laughing on his Instagram account and copied in Van Persie who, at the time of writing, has not offered a response. We’re not hopeful that he will decide to get in touch as the Old Trafford inquest continues.

It was a good weekend for Rosicky, who made his maiden Premier League appearance of the season as Arsenal triumphed 3-0 away to Aston Villa, with the Gunners veteran coming on as a second-half substitute for Aaron Ramsey.

Arsenal scored three times in four first-half minutes to secure maximum points on the road, with an impressive Mesut Ozil opening the scoring before Danny Welbeck claimed his first goal for the club and Aly Cissokho put through his own net.

This win was just the reaction Arsene Wenger required after his side had been brushed aside by Borussia Dortmund in their previous outing, and places Arsenal in fourth position in the top-flight with nine points from five games.

Manchester United, meanwhile, have four fewer points and this tally is the worst they have ever compiled from their first five games of a season. The two sides, both rivals for the Premier League’s coveted top four, will finally play each other on November 22.
