Updates from Saturday, Dec. 7

Robin van Persie made his return for Manchester United during Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Newcastle, but looked far from 100 percent fit.

The Dutchman played the entire 90 minutes in a tame performance, his selection noted by the club's official Twitter account:

#mufc team to face Newcastle: De Gea; Rafael, Evans, Vidic, Evra; Nani, Jones, Cleverley, Januzaj; Hernandez, van Persie.
