Few would have ever have imagined it possible but Carlos Tévez played football in the sky blue shirt today for the first time in close to five months…

Behind closed doors at Carrington this afternoon, Preston North End beat City 3-1 in a reserves league cup tie. Luca Scapuzzi netting City’s goal.

Tévez played the first half before being replaced by Jordi Hiwula with the score 0-0.

The erstwhile on strike striker remains on course to make the City squad that takes on Swansea at the Liberty Stadium in 10 days time.
