A knock to Robin van Persie in Swansea has added injury to insult.

Robin van Persie only made it back from injury ahead of this weekend's game against Swansea City, though the ailing Dutchman has picked up another knock. According to Manchester United's official Twitter account, the 31-year-old had to leave the ground with "his right foot in a protective boot":

Of course, that doesn't give us any clue as to whether he's going to be set for a spell on the sidelines, but hopefully he won't with Radamel Falcao's struggles still ongoing. United are looking a little light on attacking options at the moment, and with Louis van Gaal persisting with a two-striker formation, it may well be that we get to see a little more of James Wilson, who so far has only been a bit-part player.
