Manchester United have been rocked by news that Robin van Persie is facing another six weeks out. The Daily Mail says United fear Van Persie could be on the sidelines for a further six weeks with a repeat of a thigh injury he suffered at Arsenal.

He suffered the same injury at Arsenal in December 2007 and did not play in the Premier League between December 16 and March 9, making only 15 appearances.

The Dutchman has not been available to Moyes since December 10.
