Robin van Persie left the Liberty Stadium in a walking boot last weekend and will definitely miss the Week 27 match with Sunderland and likely more once a diagnosis is finally reached.
While not ideal, the absence of van Persie might solve a problem for Louis Van Gaal who has been struggling for how best to align his attacking options. Van Persie's absence opens the door for Wayne Rooney and Falcao/James Wilson to partner at forward with a spot open in midfield for Juan Mata/Ander Herrera. Throw in RvP's form this season and the results from Rooney's run as a deeper-lying midfielder and United might actually be in a better spot with van Persie injured. Feb 27 - 11:58 AM
