Carlos Tevez scored twice to put Manchester City in pole position for an automatic place in next season's Champions League as they recorded a 3-0 victory over Stoke.

Tevez's double means a win for City at Bolton on Sunday will secure a third-place finish and ensure the Blues avoid a hazardous qualification clash in August.

The South American also moved level with Dimitar Berbatov in the race for the Golden Boot prize. Joleon Lescott also found the target for City, who have enjoyed a brilliant week after winning the FA Cup.
