Robin van Persie Ruled Out of League Cup Match Against Liverpool: Daily Soccer Report

robin van persie1 Robin van Persie Ruled Out of League Cup Match Against Liverpool: Daily Soccer Report

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.

      I just hope that David Moyes ,ll not repeat the mistake of using Young,welbeck and Smalling.The made MU to loosed the last game.

  2. Steven P. says:

    United are still favorites even without RVP. They are at home and playing a Liverpool side that has been poor this season. Yes, they won their first 3 matches but they were all 1-0 wins that could have gone the other way. People think that Suarez will make huge difference but Liverpool actually have a better record without him than with him since he’s joined them. He is also coming back from a lengthy layoff so it will take him time to get back into the flow of things.

    I predict an easy win for United who will put out their best team for this one. United will be glad for home comforts.
