Manchester City defender Micah Richards was delighted to have Carlos Tevez back for victory over Chelsea.

Richards says Tevez can act as an inspiration for his teammates, despite his AWOL antics.

"It was really good that Carlos Tevez came back and that most people got right behind him. He can be inspirational and I am sure that like all the players he will have his say between now and the end of the season," he told City's website.
