Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini believes it will be another 10 days before Carlos Tevez is back to his best.

After six months out following his major fall-out with Mancini and the City hierarchy, Tevez came off the bench on Wednesday night to inspire a 2-1 comeback triumph over Chelsea. He was involved in the early stages of the attack that brought the hosts level thanks to Sergio Aguero's penalty and played the pass for Samir Nasri to net the winner.

"Carlos is not 100% but that is normal," said Mancini. "But he knows the football. That was important because he did an incredible assist for Samir."
