Manchester United's new signing Robin Van Persie is expected to feature in their first match of the season tonight.
They're at Everton who's four-all draw at Old Trafford dented United's title hopes last season.
Van Persie signed from Arsenal for £24m.
Robin van Persie said there were "no hard feelings" after he completed a move from Arsenal to Premier League rivals Manchester United FC.
In his first press conference as a United player, he said: "From my side and Arsenal's side, there is no hard feelings. No one is angry with me and I'm not angry with them".
Robin Van Persie is about to become a Manchester United player. The Arsenal striker is this evening on his way to the North West for a medical before he completes a reported 24 million pound move to Old Trafford.
His new manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes he's assembling the most potent strikeforce in Europe. Daniel Hewitt has the story:
Manchester United could field Robin van Persie in their Premier League opener against Everton on Monday after striking a deal to prise the Dutch frontman from Arsenal.
The Dutchman is in Manchester for a medical, with only that and personal terms the potential obstacles to the deal being completed.
No fee has been announced by United, although it is believed to be around the £20million mark for a 4 year deal.
There is now the prospect of him pairing up with Wayne Rooney as United look to reclaim the domestic league title from big-spending neighbours Manchester City.
The transfer represents the biggest deal United have done since Dimitar Berbatov's club record £30.75m move from Tottenham in 2008.
