Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez will miss Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against his old club Manchester United and could be out for up to a month, City manager Roberto Mancini said on Thursday.

Tevez injured his hamstring during City 's 3-0 defeat at Liverpool on Monday and despite initial hopes he could make a quick recovery, is now likely to be sidelined for much of the Premier League final run-in.

Mancini told a news briefing before the match: "Tevez is not available for Saturday. I think he will recover in three or four weeks. We cannot take any risks."

Manchester United face City at Wembley on Saturday (1615 GMT).
