London:

Robin van Persie will be assessed by Arsenal's medical staff after coming off injured in the Netherlands' 5-3 win over Hungary in a European Championship qualifying match.

The striker opened the scoring in Amsterdam but was withdrawn just before halftime with what coach Bert van Marwijk described as a "knee to his thigh."

Arsenal says Van Persie will return to the club on Wednesday and be assessed by the team's doctors ahead of Saturday's match against Blackburn in the Premier League.

Van Persie, the Gunners' top scorer in the league with 11 goals, missed five months of last season after hurting his ankle on international duty.

Arsenal is second in the league, five points behind Manchester United with a game in hand.
