There was a fear that van Persie had suffered a serious injury and he was taken straight to hospital, but the club announced later on Sunday evening that the forward had only suffered a torn eyelid and nothing more serious.

On Monday, Van Persie took to his twitter account to thank everyone for their messages of support.
