Man United hit with injury blow following Swansea City defeat

Manchester United could be without the services of Robin van Persie for some time, with the striker seen leaving the match against Swansea City on crutches, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

In addition, the 21-year-old was also wearing a protective boot and looks to have damaged his right leg during the clash.

The Swans have now completed a double against the Red Devils, picking up all three points on both the home as well as the away fixture with an identical 2-1 result.

Van Gaal believed his side were in control of the match, despite having to play with 10 men due to Van Persie’s injury.

Having already used their quota of three substitutes, the Netherlands international was forced to continue even though he was unable to run.

“We dominated the game even with 10 men because Robin van Persie could not run anymore because of an injury (after United had made their last substitution),” he said.

Although the extent of his injury is being played down, United will have to wait for results of his scans to ensure just how long they will be without their first-choice forward.
