Owen wins it for United; PREMIER LEAGUE.
Owen's timing could hardly have been better when, having been included among the substitutes following his recovery from mumps and a calf injury, he was introduced as a 52nd-minute replacement for Obafemi Martins.
He had already headed straight at Jussi Jaaskelainen when he anticipated perfectly a cross from fellow newcomer Geremi to glance a second effort past the keeper.
Owen said: "Geremi is a fantastic crosser of the ball. As soon as he gets the ball, I come alive.
"I try to get half a yard and spring, and I did."
