Van Persie was substituted during the 4-1 World Cup qualifying win with a thigh injury, but coach Louis van Gaal moved to play down fears.

Van Gaal claims the substitution was a "precautionary measure".

"It does not seem to be too serious, but we did not want to take any risks," van Gaal told Dutch broadbaster SBS6.

Van Persie, 29, has scored four goals in three matches since joining United from Arsenal in a £24m deal last month.

The striker also scored in the Netherlands' 2-0 World Cup qualifying victory against Turkey on Friday.
