Can Tevez Make The Difference?

It seems that Footballs pantomime villain has returned to centre stage.

Carlos Tevez has always made a name for himself in the media eye, be it from switching his allegiance from the red to blue side of Manchester, or deciding to go on a three month hiatus because he felt “mistreated” at Manchester City.

Well, at least for now anyway, Carlos has turned over a new leaf…

With the title race heating up for what Is promising to be the closest yet, the Argentinian forward has decided to bury the hatchet with manager Mancini and take his place alongside fellow Argentine Aguero up top in order to bolster their chances of clinching their first ever Premier League Title. He told an Argentinian reporter on Monday, “I am ready to return, to win and do the best for the club.”

However, is it a formality that Tevez is the man to bring the coveted Premier League title to the Etihad?  Well let’s look at the facts.

Although the striker boasts an impressive 52 goals in a mere 84 appearances in the Sky Blue’s shirt, it has not been without the help of the teammates around him.

Take David Silva, the tricky playmaker has been the epitome of the attacking midfielder this season, setting up an impressive 14 goals this season, the highest in the Premier League.

Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko have also been a formidable strike force this year, scoring a combined total of 34 between them.

These stats alone are enough to give any manager a headache of selection, saying this, Tevez could even struggle to play, never mind win the team their first title!

Coming away from Man City for a moment, who’s to say it isn’t already too late to revitalise this team? As a keen believer in late form, as history has shown, Manchester United are never a team to write off. Regardless of how Carlos Tevez plays, the Red Devils ALWAYS make a late push for the title, and more times than not, this push is of seismic proportion.

For years now teams have gone into the last months of the season with every chance of winning the title, however, Man Utd have overcome on more than one occasion. The biggest example of this are Arsenal, for years they have seemed unstoppable, but it was often the inexperience of the last months pressure that has cost them, and with a team that has few/ no Premier league winners in it, Man City may be a bit desperate to think that relying on Carlos Tevez single-handedly getting them over the line.

All this being said, I think I speak for all football lovers when I say this…Carlos Tevez, former Manchester United fan favourite, makes a dramatic comeback to make their local rivals League champions for the first time in over 30 years.

Sometimes these scripts just write themselves
