Cuellar: Aston Villa can face Man Utd with confidence in Carling Cup final

Aston Villa can go into their Carling Cup final clash with Manchester United full of confidence, says defender Carlo Cuellar.

the Spanish defender's third goal of the campaign earned his side a 1-1 home draw with the Red Devils on Wednesday night after a 1-0 success at Old Trafford earlier in the season.

Cuellar said: "To get four points out of Manchester United this season gives us a lot of confidence.

"It is very good for the team's belief because we have showed we can get points - and win - against the best team in this league, one of the best teams in the world.

"Will we be favourites for the final? It will be hard but we can do it. We have the confidence from these two league games.

"The final will be different but we believe we can win the game and we won't be scared of United.

"It will be important if we can win a trophy because the team is getting better and improving every year. We have some really excellent players at this club.

"It would be good for the fans and for the club to lift some silverware."
