Tevez winning Cup final fitness race

Published Add your comment

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez is winning his fitness race ahead of the FA Cup final, according to reports.

The Argentine has been out of action at Eastlands after suffering a hamstring injury on April 11th, an injury which kept the forward out of the club's famous semi-final victory against Manchester United.

However, The Sun claims Tevez is closing in on a first team return, and could even feature in the Barclays Premier League clash against Spurs on Tuesday.

Whether the Citizens will risk the 27-year-old just days before the Wembley showpiece is up for debate, but whispers that he could be fit for the clash can only be positive with regards to a return in-time for the final.

Nigel De Jong

Midfielder Nigel De Jong is also hopeful of a quick recovery after being forced off in the weekend 2-1 victory against West Ham, a match which saw the Dutchman score his first goal for the club.

The 27-year-old enforcer suffered a hip injury, and is keeping his fingers crossed over a speedy return. "I hope it's not too bad."
