Michael Owen has examined his former side Manchester United’s visit of Kazakhstan champions C Astana on Thursday evening as the Red Devils seek to win the silverware for the second time in four seasons.

Owen reckons that the Premier League sides will be celebrating with all three points and he admitted that it would “be disappointing” if United didn’t get off to a winning start.

“United gained a narrow, but much-needed, win against Leicester on Saturday and should follow it up in what is the first European game between English and Kazakhstani clubs,” Owen told (via The Mirror).
