Tevez targets a cup treble

Carlos Tevez is targeting a hat-trick of final victories on Sunday when United contest the Carling Cup with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Argentina striker has started for the Reds in three cup finals, winning two - in the FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Champions League. His only final defeat to date came in the UEFA Super Cup, when Zenit St Petersburg took the silverware back to Russia. But Tevez isn't one for regrets or resting on laurels, he's only looking forward now.

"The best part of the season is coming up," Tevez told MUTV.

"We're in the last 16 of the Champions League, we are top of the league and we're in the Carling Cup final. We want to win everything, that's what the fans are demanding, and we will try to win on all fronts. Let's hope we can do that."

Tevez has been a tour de force in this season's Carling Cup. He's played in all of United's five games en route to Wembley, scoring six times - including a cool spot-kick to finally see off stubborn QPR and a brilliant four-goal blitz of Blackburn.

"My personal goal is to play as many minutes on the pitch as I can, and score as often as I can for the team," added Tevez.

Betting: Carlos Tevez is 9/2 to score the first goal in Sunday's final, with ManUtd.com/bet.
