We earmarked Carlos Tevez as the one to watch at the Reebok and so it proved to be the case as ‘El Apache’ tore at Bolton’s defence to ensure City stayed unbeaten…
Tev has now scored 8 goals in 16 League and Cup starts for The Blues and has netted 4 of those goals in the last 3 games.
As we head deeper into winter we can expect more from a striker who will relish the battles to come.
A City legend in the making. Tev is our Man of The Match at Bolton.
There is also a promising vote for Sylvinho who made a sound debut at left back, but City’s general performance clearly didn’t register too well with the VMC voters.
