Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart says Carlos Tevez can help them overrun Premier League leaders Manchester United.

The Argentine striker missed most of the season after a public falling out with Mancini back in September, but Hart believes that now he is fit and firing the ex-United player can help to peg back his former club.

"We have been a bit dry on goals recently, so that fresh Carlos input has been awesome," Hart told Sky Sports.

"You can say what you want about Carlos Tevez, but when he plays, he plays to win and he plays for his team-mates."
