The main talking point before the Manchester Derby was the fact that Robin van Persie was not on the team-sheet with United confirming that the Dutchman would not feature due to a thigh injury picked up in training.
Manchester United lost 4-1 to rival Manchester City, but even if Robin van Persie would of featured we doubt it would of made a difference as it was more than a lackluster performance all over the pitch from the Champions.
David Moyes confirmed pre-match that a thigh injury would keep him out of the Manchester Derby but he is expect to return for the Liverpool match on Wednesday in the Capital One Cup or for West Brom next Saturday at Old Trafford.
Speaking with Sky Sports, Moyes said:
“We thought Robin would be okay.
“We gave him every chance. It’s nothing serious.
“He could be involved on Wednesday [against Liverpool] or next weekend [against West Brom at OT].”
