Carlos Tevez returned from his six-month absence to help inspire Manchester City's thrilling 2-1 comeback victory against Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium.

With City trailing to Gary Cahill's deflected opener, Tevez was introduced 24 minutes from time.

The controversial South American helped win the corner that led to Sergio Aguero's equaliser from the penalty spot before providing the pass for Samir Nasri to score the winner five minutes from time and reduce Manchester United's lead at the top of the Premier League to a point.
