Stoke City striker Michael Owen insists he can still score goals at Premier League level.

The former England star is expected to start on the bench tonight against Wigan at the Britannia and says he remains as hungry as ever.

"People have questioned me for the last six years if I'm honest," said Owen, who has managed just one start for the Potters in the FA Cup.

"You always get questioned when you're not playing, especially when you've played to the level I have in my career.

"I'm really hungry, though, but it's difficult to express."
