INJURED ... Robin van Persie.
INJURED ... Robin van Persie.

ROBIN van Persie has been ruled out of Manchester United’s game at Newcastle United tomorrow – but he is Louis van Gaal’s only injury concern ahead of the match at St James’s Park.

The Dutch striker picked up an ankle injury in the Red Devils’ loss at Swansea City last month.

In his press conference ahead of tomorrow’s game, though, van Gaal said there were no other injury problems to report.

However, Michael Carrick – who was on the bench against Sunderland on Saturday – will not be fit enough to start at St James’s Park.
