Watch Manchester United vs Wolves Carling Cup live stream

Michael Owen could see a return to the Manchester United starting lineup tonight as he got back to training after a groin injury and is possible for an appearance as United boss Sir Alex is set to make many changes to his side, as he is acustomed to do for League cup ties. Owen netted twice in the 5-2 victory over Scunthorpe in the last round and will be hoping for a repeat of his magic in the tie against Wolves at Old Trafford tonight. Rooney however is still absent and will be for another month due to ankle problems and Giggs and Jonny Evans are also having to sit it out.

United's most hailed player at the moment, Javier Hernandez, stole the show on Sunday by firstly scoring an amazing instintive header in the first half, then saving United's skin by scoring late and grabbing the 3 points for the team and earning their first league away win of the campaign. Talking ahead of tonight's fixture he claims that it is the prowess of his team mates that has resulted in his fine recent form and his performance on Sunday went a long way to securing his position in the starting lineup tonight as they continue to try and reclaim the trophy they've won for thw past 2 seasons, the Carling Cup.

Hernadez said: "I'm happy and I always say that the goals are all part of the team. It is a game about the team. We play with 11 and there are also seven waiting, it doesn't matter who scores. The most important thing is that there are no heroes - it's all about the effort of the team and my goals are down to my team-mates. They have trust in me, and also the staff. It's an unbelievable opportunity for me to play with the biggest team in the world, Manchester United. I'm working hard because I want to stay here a long time and win lots of trophies."

Team news for Wolves sees Stephen Hunt possibly seeing his first outing for the midlanders this season after finally shaking off a foot injury and will want to start proving himself to the molineux faithful after his signing from Hull in the summer. Ronald Zubar, Jody Craddock and Michael Kightly are all ruled out with inuury problems and captain Karl Henry is suspended.

Wolves have gone on a disappointing 4 match winless streak but manager Mick McCarthy remains positive and sees no reason why this poor form can't be stopped tonight at the Theatre Of Dreams.

Talking ahead of the match he said: "At this moment in time, wouldn't it be great for us to have a cup run? Everyone knows about the games we've got. We've just been beaten by Chelsea, we've got Man United in the cup, [Manchester] City in the league, United in the league then Arsenal in the league. So wouldn't it be great to have a victory of any sorts amongst all of those? And if it's going to be in the Carling Cup, let's have it."
