Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves will be out of action for five weeks after injuring his hamstring in his comeback on Saturday.

Hargreaves limped off minutes after starting for the first time since September 2008 and Ferguson says the England international could be back in action by mid-December.

Before Saturday's Premier League win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, Hargreaves had made just one substitute appearance in two years because of tendinitis in his knees.

Ferguson says "his training performances for eight or nine days previously had been terrific ... but maybe the tension in the buildup for the lad was too much and he suffered because of it."
