Van Persie missed Sunday's clash with local rivals Manchester City as his team were dominated in a 4-1 defeat. It was later revealed that he was suffering from a groin injury.
I don't think he will play on Wednesday. He will have an outside chance for Saturday.
Moyes also spoke about the importance of Wednesday's game against old rivals Liverpool, especially after United's performance against Manchester City on Sunday. Changes will be likely, but that doesn't mean Moyes will be fielding a whole new team of players.
It (Sunday) has gone now. I can't do anything about it. We have moved on and we get ready for the next game.
When you have been a football manager for the amount of time I have you are always going to have shocks.
I have had lots and I have no doubt there will be more in the future. That is the way football is.
United's clash with Liverpool also marks the return of controversial Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. The player was given a 10-match ban at the end of last season for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, but Moyes refused to go into detail about his return.
It means Liverpool have got a really good player. Does it change the complexion (of the game)?
