Richard Dunne is not worried he won’t face his old team Man City in the Carling Cup – and says Villa can beat United.

Part of Dunne must have been hoping to meet Roberto Mancini’s team at Wembley, but publicly he is saying it’s United he’s looking forward to doing battle with now. He also denied claims Wayne Rooney is United’s only real remaining danger man.

Dunne said: ‘Last year everyone was saying United are relying on Ronaldo too much. One man doesn't make a team and, regardless of who's scoring the goals for them, United are still up there and challenging strongly.

‘As good as Wayne Rooney is, and he has been in fantastic form, he can't just do it all on his own. He needs support, but then the players that they have there will nearly always be the best around.’

Would he have preferred to play Manchester City?

‘No, I'm at Aston Villa now and that's all I'm concentrating on. For me and for the club, it's going to be a great day at Wembley and that's something we can look forward to.

‘Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world so we're looking forward to a tough final against them.

‘The fact we won at their place won't affect Manchester United, I don't think. It's more for us. It gives us the belief that we can beat them. We've beaten United once this season so we know we can beat them again.

‘But, come the big games and the finals, it's United who have all the experience and all the knowledge of playing in them and winning big tournaments.’
