Robin van Persie and Nemanja Vidic will both miss Manchester United's Champions League encounter with Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday.

Van Persie has a groin injury and Vidic is still not being risked after suffering concussion against Arsenal earlier this month.

Marouane Fellaini is suspended but Phil Jones (groin) is available as United chase the victory required to book their place in the last 16, although Leverkusen are unbeaten at home this season.
