Playing his first game for Manchester City since September last year, striker Carlos Tevez is likely to be among the substitutes when they take on Chelsea.


The Argentine returned to training five weeks ago after a three-month absence - courtsey a standoff with the club - which makes him an uncertainty on manager Roberto Mancini’s starting eleven on Wednesday.

"He is getting better but I don't think Carlo can have more than 25-30 minutes," Mancini was quoted as saying.

"A player like Carlo needs to play but for 90 minutes it is impossible. But if he can play 30 minutes, after 45, then in three or four games he could have 90 minutes, easily. Tomorrow we will decide. We want to know the situation with the players."
