Manchester United striker Michael Owen says he missed their Community Shield due to a back injury.

Owen, however, was delighted with the 3-2 win.

He tweeted: "Forgetting the result, the lads were brilliant today. 3-2 flattered City I thought. How we were 0-2 behind at HT was amazing.

"I hurt my back on Friday morning. Nothing serious, should be back training on Tuesday and can't wait for the season to start."
