Robin van Persie returns for Manchester United's match against Sunderland

Robin van Persie returns to the Manchester United squad for this Sunday's Premier League clash against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Robin van Persie is in contention to feature for Manchester United in Sunday's Premier League match against Sunderland.

The Dutchman was not declared fit enough to play in United's opening 2-1 defeat to Swansea City last weekend due to his World Cup exploits.

However, manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed that the 31-year-old will return to the fold at the Stadium of Light, while new signing Marcos Rojo could also make his debut for the Red Devils.

Antonio Valencia and Jonny Evans have returned to training following their recent injury problems.
