MANCHESTER, England - Manchester United striker Robin van Persie will undergo a second scan to determine the nature and extent of the knee injury he sustained in the win over Olympiakos in the Champions League.

Van Persie was carried off on a stretcher after hurting his knee in a challenge toward the end of Wednesday's 3-0 victory, in which he scored a hat trick to send his team into the quarter-finals.

United manager David Moyes said on Friday that Van Persie was being rescanned because "there was nothing conclusive" in the first test.

Moyes said the Netherlands international will miss Saturday's Premier League game against West Ham.
