Tevez to return for FA Cup final?

Roberto Mancini hints that Carlos Tevez will be fit for next month's FA Cup final.

Roberto Mancini has suggested that Carlos Tevez will be fit to play in the FA Cup final.

The striker has been out with a hamstring injury since Man City's 3-0 defeat at Liverpool last week, missing the FA Cup semi with Man Utd at the weekend. He is now expected to miss the next four League games.

Speaking today, Mancini said that he expected Tevez to be fit for the Cup final with Stoke on May 14, telling reporters: "I hope Carlos can recover in time as we have four weeks."

He added that defender Micah Richards - also suffering a hamstring injury - would need "another week to ten days" to recover.
