Van Persie picked up an ankle injury on Saturday night against Benfica in Arsenal’s final pre-season game which we lost 2-1. After Van Persie gave us the lead he was forced to leave the game following a tackle by Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay. Van Persie was clearly not happy with this challenge and he had every right to be upset.
After the game, Wenger said: “It is an ankle problem, I don’t know how bad it is.”
Hopefully it is not too serious!
