Owen back for Marseille clash

Michael Owen should return for Manchester United's midweek Champions League game against Marseille after it was feared that he could miss the rest of the season with a groin injury.

Owen, 31, has struggled with injuries throughout his career and spent three months on the sidelines from October with a hamstring problem, and reports suggested that his 'groin had gone' after a training session on Monday.

Now, the club have revealed that while the striker will miss the FA Cup tie against non-league Crawley Town, he should be back in time for the Champions League tie.

"Michael Owen picked up a small injury during the week and is out of the Crawley game,'' Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed. ''It's disappointing because I was keen to play him. We could risk him but there's no point. He should be okay for Wednesday [against Marseille].''

Ferguson also confirmed that long-term absentee Antonio Valencia should return to full fitness shortly.

"Antonio [Valencia] has done a full week's training with the Reserves,'' he said. ''Mainly running, there hasn't been any contact. He's done very well. We hope he'll join us by the end of next week.''
