Carlos Tevez could make a return to the Manchester City line-up in next Wednesday's Premier League clash with Chelsea - a prospect that Kolo Toure is eagerly anticipating.

The Ivorian international defender has spoken of his delight at the possibility of welcoming the 28-year-old striker back into the first-team fold, and is confident he can have a positive impact in the Citizens' push for the Premier League title.

Tevez has not featured for Roberto Mancini's side since September following his alleged refusal to come on in a Champions League clash against Bayern Munich. However, the Argentine has now made up with the City boss, and last season's joint Premier League top goalscorer is poised to return to action.

"Carlos is a great player and I can't wait to see him play in this team," Toure told Sky Sports. "He's a fighter, he is a strong character and his quality is fantastic. For me, I can't wait."

Speaking after last night's disappointing Europa League exit at the hands of Sporting Lisbon, Toure remained upbeat about the manner of City's second half performance, and hopes it can spur them on in their domestic campaign.

"In the first half it wasn't Man City," he added. "We didn't run, it was as simple as that, and when you don't run you can't win anything.

"The second half was much better and we need to play like that every game, for the whole game.

"We don't want to lose the Premier League. It's going to be fantastic. This team will fight with all our power and give all we have."
