Manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that van Persie (ankle) is unlikely to return for United until after the international break.

Van Gaal said his star striker is not training yet, and any work he does is with the medical staff. Wayne Rooney will continue to play an attacking role while van Persie is out, with Falcao, Marouane Fellaini and James Wilson also likely to play up front.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Van Persie has been ruled out for this weekend's match versus Tottenham, according to the Official Team Website.

Van Persie has been sidelined since Feb. 21 after suffering an ankle injury versus Swansea City. He will continue rehabbing the injury in hopes of playing against Liverpool next week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Van Persie is expected to be out for at least 3-to-4 weeks because of the ankle injury he suffered last Saturday against Swansea City, the Daily Express reports.

Van Persie was seen leaving the Liberty Stadium wearing a walking boot and using crutches, giving little confidence that he would be able to play this Saturday against Sunderland. Now that he'll be sidelined well beyond that, Falcao should get plenty of opportunities to prove his worth leading the United attack.

Van Persie is not expected to play Saturday against Sunderland because of an ankle injury suffered last Saturday at Swansea City, the Independent reports.

Van Persie was seen after the Swansea match using crutches and wearing a walking boot, giving little hope that he would make a quick return. Falcao is expected to start in his place up front.

Van Persie was seen using crutches and wearing a protective boot on his right foot after Saturday's match against Swansea City, ESPN FC reports.

Van Persie missed last Monday's FA Cup match against Preston North End with an undisclosed issue, and he went down in the closing minutes of Saturday's match, though the specifics of the injury haven't been revealed. If he is unable to play next Saturday against Sunderland, Falcao could re-enter the starting lineup in his place.

Van Persie (knock) is in the starting XI for Saturday's match against Swansea City.

Van Persie sat out Monday’s FA Cup match against Preston North End with a knock, but he was cleared to play Friday and he’ll assume his starting spot once again.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Van Persie (knock) has been deemed fit to face Swansea City on Saturday, manager Louis van Gaal said Friday.

Van Persie sat out United's FA cup victory over Preston North End with what van Gaal described as "something," but the undisclosed issue is apparently not serious to hold him out any longer. RVP rarely comes off the bench when fit, so fantasy owners can confidently plug him back into their starting lineups.

Manager Louis van Gaal said Monday that van Persie (knock) will be available for Saturday's Premier League match against Swansea City.

Van Persie did not play in Monday's FA Cup match against Preston North End, with van Gaal saying his striker was dealing with "something." However, it appears to be less-than-serious, and he'll likely be back in the starting XI at Liberty Stadium.
