Van Persie required a few tries but eventually managed to chip the ball into the bin. Drogba also managed to complete the challenge while wearing a suit.
Van Persie joined United on a three-year deal for a transfer fee reported to be worth £4.7 million and made his league debut in the 2-0 win over Eskişehirspor on the weekend.
Drogba joined MLS side Montreal Impact from Chelsea over the summer. The experienced striker spent two seasons at Galatasaray and scored 20 goals in 53 games before joining Chelsea in the summer.
The Ivory Coast international won the Süper Lig, Turkish Cup and reached the quarter-final of the Champions League while at the Lions.
Drogba provided two assists and seven goal in 40 appearances for Chelsea last season.
