Man City boss Mancini tightlipped on transfer plans for Arsenal's Van Persie

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini was tightlipped yesterday on his interest in Arsenal captain Robin van Persie.

Van Persie has been widely touted as a transfer target, though Mancini wisely chooses to dodge that issue ahead of the game.

"I hope he doesn't play against us," he says. "If he misses it with flu it will be better."
