Owen to return on Monday

When Owen limped out of the Champions League win over Wolfsburg on Wednesday if was first feared he could be sidelined for a month after suffering a groin injury.

He said: “The injury is fine. I just felt my groin going tight and if I’d kept on playing, then I think I would’ve pulled it. So I came off before I pulled up.

“Instead of being out for three or four weeks, I’m only going to be out for three or four days. You listen to your body a bit more as you get older and more experienced!”
