Carlos Tevez In Race Against Time To Be Fit For Derby Against Manchester United

Manchester City star Carlos Tevez has flown home to Argentina in a bid to be fit for the derby clash with Manchester United in a fortnight.

The two clubs clash on November 10 and the 26-year-old has been told he faces two weeks on the sidelines with a dead leg picked up against Arsenal. The prognosis came as a shock as he was just expected to miss Saturday's trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers, but scans have picked up internal bleeding and swelling.

Tevez has endured a week in the headlines as team-mate Roque Santa Cruz voiced fears the star pined for a permanent return to his homeland. Speaking to reporters, manager Roberto Mancini dismissed those fears but expressed worry that his star striker's international commitments were putting his health at risk.

The story is too old to be commented.

Lol he and Bellamy is the only one that made the different for City, if he not playing the only guy probably make a different is Silva, and if Tevez out the odd is really is against him
