Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez says he has gained a new level of motivation following Roberto Mancini's recent praise of Robin van Persie.

The City manager was quoted as saying Manchester United striker Van Persie could prove the difference between the two teams in the race for the Barclays Premier League title. Van Persie has been a revelation for the Old Trafford club since his summer switch from Arsenal, scoring 16 league goals so far to help United move seven points clear of City at the top.

Mancini also expressed his unhappiness at losing out in the battle to sign Van Persie, but Tevez insists the current squad can prove they are just as prolific in front of goal. And the Argentinian told several newspapers: "Those words were a motivation for the strikers. We know that we need to carry on fighting."
