Venables: Man City will retain title. Tevez the key

Former England coach Terry Venables believes Manchester City will outshine Manchester United and win the Premier League title.

Venables wrote in The Sun: "The red half of Manchester may think the title’s in the bag with Robin van Persie’s arrival.

"But I’m backing the Blue half to retain the Premier League crown — thanks to their best ‘new’ signing of the summer.

"I do not mean Jack Rodwell, who arrived at Manchester City this week from Everton.

"No, I am referring to another prized asset... Carlos Tevez.

"Yes, I know the Argentinian striker has been at the club for a few seasons.

"But the way he has returned from his summer break, he is like a new signing for the Prem champions.

"In fact, he is better than a new signing because he already knows the place inside out."
