Carling Cup Final 2009

Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have already won the Club World Cup and have one hand back on the Premier League trophy after building a seven point lead over Liverpool.

A repeat of last season’s Champions League triumph remains a distinct possibility as well after Tuesday’s goalless draw against Inter Milan in the last 16 first leg clash in the San Siro put United in pole position to reach the quarter-finals.

As if that wasn’t enough to keep them occupied, United are through to the FA Cup quarter-finals, where they face Fulham next weekend.

To win every competition they have entered would rightly see Cristiano Ronaldo, Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney and company enshrined among the great teams in the history of the game.

But failure to beat Tottenham, the current League Cup holders, this weekend would shatter those dreams in one afternoon

Tottenham manager Harry Rednapp concedes, there will still be more than enough quality in the United line-up to inspire fear in any opponent.

“Alex may change one or two but he wants to win everything. That is why he is what he is. He’s not going to put out a team that he doesn’t think will win,” Redknapp said.

Redknapp sent out a shadow side for Thursday’s unsuccessful attempt to overturn a two-goal deficit against Shakhtar Donetsk in the UEFA Cup and he is likely to make up to 10 changes for the final.

Keeping his senior stars fresh for Wembley, and the forthcoming Premier League clash with Middlesbrough, should give Tottenham a fighting chance of retaining the trophy they won with a 2-1 success over Chelsea last season.

But Redknapp still has fitness doubts over captain Ledley King and midfielder Jamie O’Hara.
