One to go: Pavlyuchenko will make history if he scores in Sunday's showdown at Wembley[LNB] Roman Pavlyuchenko hopes to become the first Tottenham [LNB]player to score in every round of the Carling Cup when Spurs meet Manchester United[LNB]at Wembley on Sunday.   [LNB]The Russia striker has scored in all five previous ties this season and Pavlyuchenko admitted that making history excites him.   [LNB]'It's something that I am thinking about,' he said. 'But my only priority is that we play well and win. If I score goals too then this can only be a good thing. [LNB]'I don't approach cup games any differently to league matches but in the Carling Cup things seem to have fallen into place. [LNB]'Our Carling Cup run this year has given us something to cling to and everyone is so determined to go all the way now. [LNB]'We owe a lot to the supporters who have stood by us through some difficult times. To repay them by winning the trophy would be a great thing.'[LNB]After a slow start to his career in England, Pavlyuchenko's form has improved and he is on target to reach his season target of 15 goals.   [LNB]He said: 'It took me a while to adapt my game from the Russian style. Tottenham supporters have shown patience because I think I have shown what I am capable of since.'
