Carlos Tevez is fully aware of his responsibilities to maintain harmony in Tuesday's big derby cup clash as Manchester City's £25 million striker goes back to Old Trafford aiming for a Wembley final.

Carlos Tevez has the final word for Man City
EmpicsCarlos Tevez: Will show restraint if he scores against Manchester United.

His advisor Kia Joorabchian told ESPNsoccernet ahead of the Carling Cup semi-final second leg at Old Trafford that Tevez knows he must keep the peace.

"Carlos wants to help City get to the final. He would love to score, but if he did he would not celebrate in front of the United fans, he has a lot of respect for them from when he was there," Joorabchian said.

"The game is about passion so no one can advise Carlos to tone down any celebrations, but knowing him I am sure they will not be wild celebrations, he will not go crazy thats for sure."

The behaviour of Tevez is paramount to prevent any more ugly scenes among the supporters. But Joorabchian is not concerned about any risk as he told Soccernet: "Basically Carlos is very concentrated, his mind set is simple, he wants to win and he will concentrate on the team winning."
