Robin van Persie returns from injury for Manchester United’s


Robin van Persie made his return from an ankle injury in Manchester United Under-21s 1-1 draw at Leicester City. 

The Holland international striker was on the bench for the Premier League defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday but played 62 minutes for the under-21s.

Adnan Januzaj, 20, and Rafael da Silva, 24, sustained injuries in the game. Januzaj pulled up chasing a ball in the 54th minute, while Da Silva was substituted at the end of the first half after a blow to the ribs.

The centre-half Jonny Evans played the full 90 minutes after his return from suspension following the spitting incident involving Newcastle’s Papiss Cissé, and nearly scored with a header, saved by Leicester’s Adam Smith.

Van Persie, 31, set up Sean Goss for United’s 32nd-minute equaliser after Harry Panayiotou had volleyed in Leicester’s opening goal in the 18th minute.
