RvP Update

New, comments

Finally a proper update from Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson over on ManUtd.com:

Summer signings Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa are fit for the Barclays Premier League visit of Wigan Athletic on Saturday, but Phil Jones could be sidelined for up to 10 more weeks.

There was speculation van Persie and Kagawa could miss the game after picking up strains on international duty in midweek, but Sir Alex has confirmed they will be available to face the Latics.

Now this could be out-of-date, but it was posted on ManUtd.com at 10am this morning:

"Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa both picked up minor injuries on international duty and Wayne Rooney continues to recover from his gashed leg so Danny Welbeck and Chicharito could be handed starts."

Hopefully we'll get more solid news later today but at the moment I'm leaning toward dropping RvP.
