Tevez plundered a hat-trick in the Bluesâ€™ thrashing of Barnsley to help book Roberto Manciniâ€™s men a place in the semi-finals.
Lescott hailed Tevez and said: â€œHis performance doesnâ€™t surprise me. He has been our most consistent player since I joined the club.
â€œIn his first two years he carried the team. We won a lot of games by one goal and that was down to Carlos. When he plays like that heâ€™s unplayable.
â€œNow we are at the business end of the competition and itâ€™s not about keeping clean sheets but winning.
â€œWe need to win the next two and we have our name on the Cup again."
