Tevez tipped to recover in time

Tevez was forced to sit out the semi-final victory against

Manchester United last weekend after suffering a hamstring injury

in the defeat by Liverpool. City expect him to miss the next four

league games as well, starting at Blackburn on Monday. But Mancini

believes his Argentinian skipper could be back to face Stoke at

Wembley on May 14. “I hope Carlos can recover in time as we have

four weeks, ” the City boss said. Full-back Micah Richards is also

ruled out of the Blackburn game after missing the semi-final with a

hamstring problem. Mancini added: “Micah is not ready yet. He needs

another week to ten days to recover.”
