Van Persie - Winning Fitness Battle
Watching Robin Van Persie take a tumble into that photographers` pit, at Loftus Road, gave us all cause for concern.
Even more so when the Dutch striker was forced off the field of play in the second half and Sir Alex Ferguson, in his post-match interview, suggested he may miss the return leg of the Champions League battle with Real Madrid.
However, it appears that the injury is nothing more than bad bruising and although Van Persie will miss the clash with Norwich City this weekend, the inference from several news sources is that Van Persie will be fit to face Real Madrid when the Spanish giants come to Old Trafford.
