Relax guys, it is not what you think!
Van Persie has been allowed to go on a break to a sunny destination by Arsene Wenger so that he can re-charge his batteries. Van Persie has been allowed to leave as he will not feature in the FA Cup tie this weekend and that will give him so well deserved time off.
Our top goal scorer has been very lucky with injuries this season as he has been fit most of the time and Wenger has to continue managing him well because if Van Persie goes down injured, we could be in trouble.
With Henry set to return to Arsenal we now have more options upfront but it is not looking likely that Henry will play against Leeds as he has not been registered yet meaning that Marouane Chamakh or Ju Young Park could start upfront against Leeds.
