Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo is in a race to be fit for the Premier League clash against Tottenham on Sunday after the manager revealed that the player has a minor injury.

The Argentine international was withdrawn midway through the second half during the Red Devils' 2-1 loss against Arsenal in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

The defender is now a doubt to feature against the in-form north London side, who are also in the race along with United to finish amongst the top four and qualify for next season's Champions League.

Louis van Gaal confirmed Robin van Persie as the only injured player, but admitted that Rojo is a doubt with a small injury. But the player, who is set to undergo a late fitness test, could be left out of the squad by the manager as they face a crucial fixture against Liverpool next week.

"More or less, only van Persie is injured. That is a good sign – when you have a defeat and all your players want to train and show the energy in the training session. That's good to see," Van Gaal told United's official site.

"Rojo is a little bit injured. You have to take care of the health of the players. He has a minor problem. Maybe I'll take him out of the game against Tottenham Hotspur, but I have to decide," the Dutch manager added.

The former Sporting Lisbon player, who has just a minor knock will be available for the clash against the Reds at Anfield next week.

However, United have suffered a blow after it was revealed that Van Persie will miss the clash against Brendan Rodgers' team as he is still to resume training after damaging ankle ligaments during the clash against Swansea City.

"He is still with the medical department. You have to make a step to get to our department," the former Bayern Munich manager explained, as quoted by MEN.

"He is always training but is training inside, not outside on the pitch. That is when he makes the step from the technical department. Then he has to train with us," the Dutchman added.
