MOSCOW, February 27 (RIA Novosti) - Tottenham Hotspur forward Roman Pavlyuchenko may miss Sunday's Carling Cup final against Manchester United on Sunday, the club's manager said on Friday.

Pavlyuchenko has scored in every match in this season's Carling Cup, including in both the first and second legs of the semifinal against Burnley, and is bidding to become the only player in the history of the tournament to score in every round.

However, Harry Rednapp admitted, there is a slight chance he could miss the match.

"Pavlyuchenko seems okay, but he has a little groin strain, and if he isn't fit, Darren Bent is the only striker I have available," he was quoted by London's Evening Standard as saying. Tottenham's other strikers are either injured or cup-tied.

The Russian international has scored 12 goals in 28 appearances for Tottenham since joining the north London club from Spartak Moscow last summer. Nine of these goals have come in seven cup ties, including three in the FA Cup.

Andrei Arshavin, Russia's other representative in the English Premier League, is set to make his second appearance for Arsenal on Saturday in a home game against Fulham.
