Team News: Robin van Persie out for Manchester United

Robin van Persie will sit out of Manchester United's Champions League clash with Real Sociedad this evening.

Robin van Persie has been sidelined for Manchester United's Champions League clash with Real Sociedad this evening.

Javier Hernandez takes the place of the Dutch striker, who is not even among the substitutes at Old Trafford.

Manager David Moyes told Sky Sports News: "He has two bad toes and has been complaining about his groin so we took the chance to rest him and get him ready for the weekend."

For the visitors, captain Xabi Prieto continues his comeback from injury to take his place in midfield, while former Arsenal man Carlos Vela will want to impress on his return to England.

Antoine Griezmann will operate on the opposite flank, with Haris Seferovic starts up front.

Man Utd: De Gea, Rafael, Jones, Evans, Evra, Valencia, Carrick, Giggs, Kagawa, Rooney, Hernandez

Real Sociedad: Bravo, C. Martinez, Mikel, Inigo, De la Bella, M. Bergara, Zurutuza, X. Prieto, Vela, Seferovic, Griezmann
