Carlos Tevez is Welcome in Manchester

One of the hottest strikers in the Premier League currently, Carlos Tevez continued his excellent form with a hattrick for Manchester City in their 4-1 demolition of Blackburn Rovers this evening.

The first came courtesy of Paul Robinson's flap on a City corner with Tevez deflecting in Benjani's wayward effort. His second two were top class. One first time into the corner from 20 yards and the second, to complete his hattrick in stoppage time, from a similar distance and the same corner, only from a stationary position as he showed great technique to guide it past the defender and goalkeeper.

Carlos Tevez now has 12 goals this season; Manchester City's top scorer with as many goals as Emmanuel Adebayor and Craig Bellamy combined (6 each). Benjani was involved in all 3 of Manchester City's goals whilst he was on the pitch in the absence of Adebayor. Robinho was an unused substitute for anyone interested.

4 wins in 4 games now for Roberto Mancini that boosts City up to 4th in the Premier League table. Who thought they made the wrong decision in firing Mark Hughes? I bet all those City fans who complained just a few weeks ago are keeping quiet now. But there is still along way to go.

A heavy first touch from Vincent Kompany allowed Morten Gamst Pedersen to score a consolation for Blackburn; the first goal Manchester City have conceded under their new Italian manager.

What must Sir Alex Ferguson be thinking at Manchester United for not perusing Carlos Tevez after his loan expired at the end of last season? Manchester United are really lacking another high goalscorer other than Wayne Rooney this season and could do with the skillful, hardworking and goalscoring Tevez. We will wait to see if Mame Biram Diouf turns out to be that after their new signing made his debut in the closing stages of their 1-1 draw at Birmingham on Saturday, leaving Michael Owen as an unused substitute.

Tonight's result and Manchester United failing to beat Birmingham on Saturday left me with 2/3 correct tips this weekend. With the weather getting better and the likelihood of the Premier League returning to it's normal ways this weekend, please come back to check out my Premier League Betting Tips in a few days time as I aim to make you more money from gambling.
