Tevez reignites City charge

FULHAM (1) vs MAN CITY (4)

MANCHESTER CITY are right back in the Premier League title hunt after a comprehensive 4-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage, but manager Roberto Mancini is urging his players to keep a measure of perspective.

Goals from Yaya Toure and Pablo Zabaleta were sandwiched between a Carlos Tevez brace – Zoltan Gera added a consolation for the hosts – as City moved back to within three points of the leaders.

City were all but written off after their drab display in the recent scoreless Manchester derby, a fact clearly not lost on Mancini.

He said: “Last week I was a stupid manager who was six points behind. Now, I am the ‘best manager’ because I am only three points off the top of the league. This is not important. But if we have a big problem and we are only three points behind United and Chelsea, we are doing well.”
