Robin Van Persie returned from injury to play in the shock defeat to West Brom at Old Trafford on Saturday but Manchester United manager David Moyes will make a final decision on playing the Dutch striker from the start until tomorrow.
“Yes Robin is fit.” confirmed Moyes. “But we will make a decision tomorrow whether he will start or not.”
One player who won’t be facing the Ukrainian champions is Rio Ferdinand. The former England defender had a torrid time against the Baggies on Saturday and Moyes explained why key squad members had been left out of the travelling squad. Ferdinand joined Anderson, Fabio and and Wilfried Zaha in not travelling earlier today.
“Rio has a slight groin problem but it’s nothing serious.” said Moyes,
