• The Secret of Robin van Persie

    ‘Manchester Derby’ Sunday 23rd September 2013 marked the end of a quite remarkable run which stretched back to March 2011, but for most United supporters this startling statistic largely went unnoticed given the performance and result in a hugely disappointing day for The Reds.

    After 90 consecutive Premier League games, Dutch striker Robin van Persie missed out against city rivals due to an injury he picked up in the UEFA Champions League midweek victoryˡgainst Bayer Leverkuson. Manchester United manager David Moyes later confirmed a slight groin problem during his post-match interview, with a return possible on Wednesday night :

    “He did a bit of training in the last couple of days, but he just felt it when he did any sharp movements and he didnִ want to aggravate it, so we took the decision [to not play him today].”

    Thatֳ a run which extends back over two and a half years, no mean feat when you consider the player had previously missed almost a third of his Premier League games whilst at Arsenal.
