Man City boss Mancini upset with missing Tevez for Man Utd winner

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini admits Carlos Tevez went missing for Robin van Persie's winner.

It was Tevez's half-cleared corner that led to Pablo Zabaleta's equaliser, although there was some confusion about where the Argentina star should have been for Van Persie's fateful free-kick given he moved away from his place in the wall to try and mark Rooney, who had become the sixth - and youngest - player to reach 150 Premier League goals.

"I don't know what happened," said Mancini. "I understood before it was dangerous that free-kick and we made a mistake by only putting three players in the wall.

"I called Carlos to come back into the wall but from the bench I was too far away."
