Evans lauds Man Utd striker Owen as still the best

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans believes summer signing Michael Owen is still a class act. Owen scored his third goal of the season in the Carling Cup victory against Barnsley at Oakwell.

It was a clinical finish as he foxed goalkeeper Luke Steele after he made the most of a delightful ball from Fabio.

Evans has no doubts at all about his team-mate's quality and said: "Every time Michael comes on he gets into really good positions.

"He changed the game a bit for us on Sunday. It was the first time we really looked like getting in behind Liverpool.

"It was good for him against Barnsley to get another goal. It was a great finish from him. He made it look easy by passing the ball into the corner."
