Man Utd striker Robin van Persie leaves Swansea in protective boot

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie faces an anxious wait over a possible foot injury after he was photographed leaving Swansea's Liberty Stadium wearing a protective boot.

The Dutchman went down in the closing stages of his side's 2-1 defeat, but it was not immediately clear what the problem was. He had only just returned from injury to be named in the starting XI.

Louis van Gaal did not mention the extent of his striker's injury in his post-match news conference, but said: "We dominated the game even with 10 men when Van Persie could not run any more."

Manchester United's next game is at home to Sunderland in the Premier League next Saturday.
