Arsenal's Van Persie fit to face Man United

Arsenal's Van Persie fit to face Man United

Arsenal forward Robin van Persie has been passed fit to play in the second leg of the Champions League semifinal against Manchester United on Tuesday.
The Netherlands international, Arsenal's leading scorer, has been struggling with a groin problem since the FA Cup semifinal loss to Chelsea on April 18.
"Robin is a great striker and a great player," captain Cesc Fabregas said Monday. "He can always help us."
Former United defender Mikael Silvestre faces a late fitness test on a similar complaint as Arsenal bids to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg.
"He's in the squad, but he still has a little groin problem that we will assess tomorrow," manager Arsene Wenger said.
