David Moyes confirms Van Persie dropped due to 'multiple injuries'

Manchester United have left Robin van Persie out of the starting line-up against Real Sociedad.

United are starting their Champions League clash against Real Sociedad with Chicharito in for Robin van Persie.

Given the club's struggling form, the Dutchman's omission from the squad has raised an eyebrow.

David Moyes spoke to SkySports ahead of the game, to confirm Van Persie was left out because he was struggling with multiple injuries.

"He never really recovered from knocks suffered when away with Holland.

"He has two bad toes, and is complaining about his groin a little bit.

"We have taken the chance to rest him, and get him ready for weekend."

Is it the right decision? Will Chicharito step up? What do you think?
