Tevez Backed To Stay At Eastlands As City Odds On To Bag Third

Following his brace against Stoke City, Carlos Tevez has been backed in to 5/6 to still be at Manchester City on the first day of next season. On the day before the FA Cup final, he was 2/5 to move over the summer although his public pledge to stay at Eastlands has seen a marked gamble at William Hill on City’s skipper staying. Carlos Tevez is 5/6 to be this season’s Premier League top scorer, while Dimitar Berbatov is the same price. City are 4/9 to beat Arsenal to 3rd in the table with the Gunners 13/8 to get the final automatic Champion’s League spot.

“Despite suffering a two month goal drought this season AND being out injured for six weeks, Tevez goes into the last day of the season with every chance of winning the golden boot and in firing City into third has more than proved his worth to the club,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Finish Third: 4/9 Manchester City; 13/8 Arsenal
