David Moyes has ruled Robin van Persie out of tomorrow’s League Cup match against Liverpool due to his injury.
The Dutch striker picked up a groin injury prior to the match against Manchester City. And now Moyes is saying that the player has an “outside chance” of featuring against West Brom in the Premier League on September 28.
This, obviously, will come as a huge blow to United who look like a different team when van Persie isn’t playing. With confidence low at United, this is a prime opportunity for Liverpool to deliver a psychological blow to United, putting more pressure on manager David Moyes.
