The Argentine star popped up with a great finish and then laid on a second for Yaya Toure as the Blues won 2-0 on a foul day at the DW Stadium. Manager Roberto Mancini made Tevez skipper this season as he leads by example ? and his countryman and close pal Pablo Zabaleta said that is working. ?When you see Carlos play like that, it makes you want to do the same,? said the defender, who put in a typically determined display at left back. ?He is so important to us, and is a great captain.? Tevez had previously only scored in one game this season, when he notched twice against Liverpool, and one of those may be removed by the Premier League?s dubious goals panel. He is not a natural goalscorer, but Zabaleta points out that he hits the net so many times due to his amazing work rate. ?He works so hard all the time,? said Zabaleta. ?He got many chances to score and got just one yesterday, but we are happy with that.  ?It was a fantastic goal. I am so happy with him because he hasn?t been scoring and a striker needs goals to be positive. ?But he is always looking to score. He keeps 100 per cent for every game and has a great character and attitude for every game, as well as his quality.?| Submit Comments| Comments (38)| Printable VersionAdd A CommentEnter your comments:Sending
