Joleon Lescott believes teammate Carlos Tevez has rediscovered his inspiring form from 2009, when he first joined Manchester City from rivals Manchester United in a controversial transfer.

The Argentine international striker was in inspired form at the weekend, netting a hat-trick for the Citizens in their 5-0 demolition of Barnsley in the FA Cup sixth round - setting up a potential semi-final with the Red Devils.

"In his first two years he carried the team on his back. We won a lot of games by one goal, and that was down to Carlos - when he plays like that he is unplayable," he said, according to

The Manchester City star also commented on how he believed Tevez can produce top class performances consistently, and believes the lengthy dispute from last season is long gone.

"His performance doesn't surprise me, to be honest.  He has been our most consistent player since I joined the club."

The 29-year-old seems to be back to his best with goals in each of his last four appearances, and Lescott hopes the Argentinian can lead City to silverware in the shape of the FA Cup this season.

City will face either the Red Devils or Chelsea, and having fallen 12 points behind United in the Premier League, it seems as though any chance of retaining their title is now gone.

That said, City managed to overturn an eight point deficit with only five weeks to go last season to snatch the title from Sir Alex Ferguson's side, and will continue the fight until it's mathematically impossible.
