Manchester United striker Michael Owen will miss the next few weeks with a hamstring injury. The former Liverpool player was expected to play in Tuesday night's 3-2 Carling Cup win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, after a recent absence with a groin injury. But Owen hurt his hamstring in training and missed the match.

"It's not going great," said the former England international yesterday. "I had a bit of a tight groin a while ago and I've trained for a week preparing for last night's game but then I had a setback.

"Unfortunately, because of a training ground injury I'm going to be out for the next few weeks, which is disappointing."
