Manchester United striker Michael Owen hopes for another Carling Cup start tonight against Aldershot.

Owen made the most of his start at Leeds in the previous round, scoring two expertly-taken goals in the 3-0 win, and it's clear he would love the opportunity to repeat his feat of playing and scoring in the final in 2010.

"It's obviously going to be a massive game for Aldershot with Manchester United coming into town," Owen explained to MUTV. "I'm sure it'll be a full house and we're treating it as an important game as well.

"There's players who weren't involved against City, me being one of them, and a lot of the lads need games so it'll be quite a strong Manchester United playing against them.

"It's a competition we want to do well in. We've done quite well in the Carling Cup over the years and we want to progress and win a trophy. That's the end game."
