Robin van Persie out four to six weeks

Robin van Persie has been ruled out for four to six weeks, meaning he will miss Manchester United’s Champions League double header against Bayern Munich.

Hat trick hero Robin van Persie is stretchered off at the end of the victory over Olympiakos.

• Payne: Fever pitch
• Aguero to miss derby

The Dutchman scored a hat trick in the 3-0 win over Olympiakos but now United have now revealed that the 17-goal forward, who missed much of November, December and January with a thigh problem, will be out for some time after a scan to determine the scale of sprained knee.

Manager David Moyes earlier said: “Robin van Persie won't be available [on Saturday against West Ham], we're getting him rescanned. We've got a lot of games coming up, it's important we have all our players fit and available.”

For the game against the Hammers, it means Moyes faces a decision whether to recall Javier Hernandez, who has not played since Feb. 9’s draw against Fulham, or to move Danny Welbeck, who excelled on the left wing against Olympiakos, into a central role, or whether to pick Wayne Rooney as a lone striker.
