CARLOS Tevez was out to prove Gary Neville wrong.

That's according to Manchester City team-mate and fellow Argentinian Pablo Zabaleta, after Tevez scored twice against former club Manchester United in the Carling Cup last night.

The response was one fingered, which just drew more 'shut it' taunts from Tevez, who has now scored 17 goals this season.

Zabaleta said: "One Manchester United player talked about Carlos before the game so he showed he is top class, a top player.

“He is amazing, everyone knows Carlos is a great player. Everyone loves him. This was a special game for him, one he has been dreaming about.”
