Michael Owen has said that he wants to continue to represent Manchester United and he did exactly that in the match against Birmingham city. The poised Welshman waited before crossing low for Berbatov to lunge ahead of Murphy to steer a smart finish into the roof of the net for his 18th goal of season in all competitions.

With the game won, Michael Owen then replaced Giggs before Fahey managed to miss a chance from Bentley's cross following a rare mistake from Nemanja Vidic.

The Birmingham midfielder was just two yards out but he could not swivel his body back to connect with the ball in time.
