Manchester United could be without both leading strikers once again when they host Tottenham on New Year's Day, boss David Moyes has revealed.

Robin van Persie has been sidelined for five games with a thigh injury, while Wayne Rooney missed the 1-0 win over Norwich last time out with a groin problem.

"We'll need to wait and see with Wayne," Moyes explained.

"He didn't train (on Monday) so we'll assess it and see how he is.

"Robin's not quite ready but we hope he'll not be too far away."
