The Netherlands international started the game up front with Wayne Rooney, who was in a more familiar forward role, but hobbled off, having appeared to injure his right leg.

Van Persie, along with the rest of the Manchester United side, were unable to prevent a second loss since November for the Red Devils, as they surrendered a lead and Swansea sealed a league double over their opponents.

Ander Herrera had put his side in front, but his goal was cancelled out come the end of the game with strikes from Ki Sung-Yeung and Bafetembi Gomis.

Louis van Gaal said that his striker could not run anymore, but was kept on because Manchester United had already made their final substitution, though the full extent of his injury is not yet known.

Any lengthy layoff for the striker is likely to hurt United’s top four tilt and any challenge for a trophy, as the Old Trafford side host Arsenal in an FA Cup quarter-final on March 9th.
