UEFA Champions League contenders Manchester United FC are hoping for a positive diagnosis on both striker Michael Owen and right-back Rafael after the pair had to be substituted during Sunday's 2-1 League Cup final win against Aston Villa FC. Owen scored United's equaliser before picking up a hamstring complaint in the first half, with his replacement Wayne Rooney later heading the winner. "[Owen] and Rafael will go for scans tomorrow," commented United manager Sir Alex Ferguson. "I think Michael will be out for a few weeks."
