Manchester City captain Carlos Tevez believes he can break through the 30-goal barrier for his club this season.

Tevez, who scored 29 goals last season, is keen to get off the mark on Thursday night when they face Timisoara in the Europa League play-off first leg match in Romania.

He said: "As a striker every year you set targets. I hope I can score more goals this season."

The Argentina international, who helped Manchester United win the Champions League, is proud to wear the armband in the blue corner of the city.

"I am very happy, " he explained. "I have to say thank you to the manager (Roberto Mancini) and the players.

"All games and all competitions are very important to me. I hope to win a trophy for City."

Tevez is looking forward to linking up with Mario Balotelli following the 20-year-old striker's arrival from Inter Milan.

Balotelli could be handed his debut after his registration was confirmed by UEFA on the day of the deadline.

Tevez said: "Mario is an excellent player. I know about him from his time at Inter Milan, where he played well."
