Manchester City assistant boss David Platt insists that Carlos Tevez is back to his best form.

Manchester City assistant boss David Platt has insisted that Carlos Tevez is back to his best foolowing his strike against Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday.

The 28-year-old, who scored the second in City's 3-2 victory, has also worked hard in pre-season, according to Platt.

"Carlos has worked ever so hard in pre-season. He has really attacked his work and not had one day off," he told the BBC.

"His goal was one of those you can remember him doing two years ago. He ducks inside, he goes away from people. That's what he's been missing and it was there again."

City open their Premier League campaign at home to Southampton next Sunday.
