United missing strike pair
Wayne Rooney and Michael Owen for the Barclays Premier League clash with Tottenham. Rooney is resting an ankle problem which could keep him out for longer than the three weeks first feared while Owen suffered a hamstring injury in training this week. The former Liverpool forward is expected to be out for four to five weeks. Veteran Ryan Giggs is also missing with a hamstring injury but should return to training on Monday. Jonny Evans could come back into contention after a hip injury.
