Coming off the heels of their 4-1 drubbing at the hands of their hated blue rivals David Moyes will be very happy to have his main goalscorer back.

Dutch striker Robin van Persie will return to action this weekend after a week on the sidelines with a thigh injury.

Without him Manchester United scored two goals in two matches also beating Liverpool 1-0 in the Capital One Cup midweek.

Van Persie was sorely missed in the Machester derby as Vincent Kompany and…company…(*cringe*) locked down Wayne Rooney and United had nowhere else to turn in the attack.
