Tevez back to boost United

05 January 2009 12:50
Manchester United will have Carlos Tevez back in their ranks for Wednesday's Carling Cup semi-final first leg meeting with Derby County. Tevez has missed United's last two games after returning to Argentina for personal reasons after scoring the winner in the 1-0 Boxing Day victory over Stoke City. The Argentina striker was absent from last Monday's 1-0 league win over Middlesbrough at Old Trafford and Sunday's 1-0 FA Cup third round success against Southampton. But United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Tevez returned to training on Monday morning and will be in the squad for the midweek trip to Pride Park. "Carlos will be back in training on Monday and he'll be involved on Wednesday," he told MUTV. "It'll be virtually the same squad (that travelled to Southampton). "I might leave out one or two, but it'll be more or less the same group of players."
