"It’s everybody’s dream [to win the Champions League] and coming to a club like Manchester United you’re always competing at the top level," he told reporters at United's pre-match press conference.
"That's one of the things you look at when you’re first asked to join the club. It’s one of the big things that stuck in my mind – playing in big European games and top League games is everybody’s dream.
"It’s very difficult to win these competitions but it’s our aim to do that and it’s exciting to be part of it."
Four months into his United career, Owen says he feels completely at home at Old Trafford and is pleased with his progress to date.
"I've loved every minute of it. It’s been everything I expected... and more," he insists. "Everybody has been so welcoming, right from the coaching staff, thecanteen ladies and the kit man, not to mention the lads and the fans. I’m really pleased that the fans seem to have taken to me and sang my name. I feel like I’ve been here many years even though it’s only been a few months."
"United has a great structure behind the scenes," he explained. "The amount of staff that look after the players is incredible. If you want to do anything, be it weight sessions or yoga, it’s all catered for. You can go into any room and there’s a member of staff there ready to give you a programme that’s specific to you. "曼联的后勤工作人员非常的棒，他们对于球员的照顾简直不可思议的细致入微，不管你要干嘛，是举重训练还是做瑜伽，他们都会全力配合你。你进到任何一个房间里，那儿都会有工作人员随时准备提供给你专门适合你的服务。'
"I’ve always done extra bits and the type of player I’ve been – a quick player – means you’re always prone to muscle niggles. So I'll continue to do work off the pitch that hopefully limits the danger [of picking up injuries]. "我在训练之后都会额外再加一点儿训练，我曾经是一个速度很快的球员，这也就意味着你的肌肉更容易酸痛，所以在场外我会继续给点儿训练来调节这一点，希望这能够让我远离伤病。“
"Also, as you get older you learn more about your body. In the last Champions League game at home [against Wolfsburg] I came off before it was too late. If I’d carried on I might have done another sprint and pulled my groin and been out for a month." “随着年龄的增长，你对自己的身体也就越来越了解，在上一次我们主场对阵沃尔夫斯堡的比赛里我及时下场以免后果不堪设想。。。。。如果我硬撑的话估计我的腹股沟又得拉伤然后休息一个月了。”
