Manchester United boss David Moyes says Robin van Persie will make their clash with Stoke City this weekend.

Moyes confirmed Van Persie could be fit for Saturday's Premier League encounter with Stoke after sitting out the win over Real Sociedad with a combination of niggling problems.

"I hope Robin will be fit for the weekend," said Moyes.

"He had a couple of niggling injuries even before he went on international duty and they have all just caught up on him a bit.

"I thought if I had a chance to give him a breather I would and fortunately for us it worked out fine."
