Two to miss Newcastle game

Robin van Persie is still injured, while Michael Carrick will not be risked. The Premier League's having a midweek round of fixtures, and ahead of Manchester United's visit to Newcastle tomorrow, Louis van Gaal has good news about the squad. Unless you like Michael Carrick or Robin van Persie that is: the latter is crocked, while the former is too recently uncrocked to be risked. Louis van Gaal tells #MUTV that Robin van Persie is United's only current injury, but adds it's too soon to say how long he'll be out for. — Manchester United (@ManUtd) March 3, 2015 Although Michael...

Van Persie to miss Arsenal reunion

Oh, Robin van Ouchie ... Bad news, narrative junkies. Robin van Persie, who limped out of Saturday's 2-1 loss at Swansea and was later seen hobbling around on crutches, will be out for two weeks with an ankle injury. As such, he'll miss this weekend's home game against Sunderland, the midweek trip to Newcastle, and then next Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final against Arsenal. With James Wilson a doubt for Saturday with a dead leg, Radamel Falcao might get another chance (a last chance?) to earn himself the right to remain in the No. 9 shirt. Alternatively, Wayne Rooney might find himself up...

Wilson a doubt for the weekend

His leg's dead, Jim. Manchester United's young scamperer limped out of last night's U21 game against Sunderland, and though the injury is nothing serious -- a dead leg -- he is now a doubt for the weekend's game against the same opposition. Except they probably won't play the reserves. Wilson's doubtfulness is good news for Radamel Falcao loyalists and the Keep Wayne Striking brigade. With Robin van Persie last seen on crutches, Louis van Gaal is down to just two strikers, and as such may not be able to continue to pretend that one of them is a midfielder.  However, Wilson's pace is sorely...

Robin van Persie picks up foot injury against Swansea

A knock to Robin van Persie in Swansea has added injury to insult. Robin van Persie only made it back from injury ahead of this weekend's game against Swansea City, though the ailing Dutchman has picked up another knock. According to Manchester United's official Twitter account, the 31-year-old had to leave the ground with "his right foot in a protective boot": Robin van Persie left the Liberty Stadium earlier today with his right foot in a protective boot. #mufc pic.twitter.com/TJULiQdyiv — Manchester United (@ManUtd) February 21, 2015 Of course, that doesn't give us any clue as to...

United duo back available for Swansea trip

United will have Robin van Persie and Phil Jones back available for this weekend's trip to Swansea City. There's good news on the Manchester United injury front, with Robin van Persie and Phil Jones both available after short injury layoffs. Both players missed United's rather painful win over Preston North End on Monday, though Louis van Gaal has revealed that Michael Carrick is United's only injured player. Quoted on United's official website, van Gaal said: "They [Jones and van Persie] are fit to play. Only Carrick is still injured. I think he shall train with the group next week. I...
