Owen Hargreaves admits he hopes to play more for Manchester United in the second-half of the season.

Hargo said: "Sir Alex has proved to be the perfect manager. With the injury, he's known when to rest me and when to play me.

"The only disappointment has been I'd like to have played more games. Hopefully, that'll change.

"Being a United player is everything I expected - and more.

"And the competition in midfield is great. We miss Paul Scholes at the moment but Anderson is showing what he can do.

"We've plenty of options with Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher pushing for places. It makes it difficult for the manager, which is a good thing."
