Manchester City players are rallying around Carlos Tevez over his penalty miss in victory over Blackpool.

City winger Andy Johnson insists skipper Tevez will carry on as penalty-taker despite his miss.

Mario Balotelli scored two spot-kicks in the 4-0 romp over Aston Villa, but Johnson feels he will struggle to get the ball off the Argentinian.

He said: "Carlos will still be taking them. He's the top scorer and the main man, there's no chance of anyone else getting them."
