The chance to rewrite the history books is spurring Carlos Tevez on to new heights.
The skipper was at his inspirational best against Wolves, bagging two goals and helping turn around a shock early deficit to put the Blues clear at the top of the table, if only for a day.
Carlos is fully aware of what silverware would mean to the fans, who have taken the talismanic striker to their hearts since his arrival here in the summer of 2009, and he says:
"What I think and what I dream is to make history for this club. It’s been a long time for this club not to win a title and that’s my dream. I am not thinking about this because of what I did for United, it’s about what I can do for City.
"We are going well at the moment but we still have a lot of matches ahead of us. You can win one match and then the following you might lose. The Premier League this year is very competitive and the teams near the bottom are beating the teams at the top. It has been a very competitive season. The feeling of winning the title is with us at City.
I have challenged myself to be the top scorer so I am fighting every day to keep that challenge to myself. Hopefully I will still score many more before the end of the season, that’s my personal challenge.
The inclusion of Edin Dzeko on Saturday saw Carlos moved into a slightly different role, but moving out of his usual position in the middle was something Carlos was happy to do for the good of the team.
"That’s what the team needed," he adds. "I was happy to help and I did my best. Then we had to change it but I was still happy to play that way.
"I feel very comfortable playing alongside Dzeko, we have already been playing together in training but it was the first time we have played a game together, and I was very happy with how it worked out."
