Manchester City will have Carlos Tevez back for their crunch clash with Premier League leaders Chelsea on Saturday, according to boss Roberto Mancini.
Tevez has been back in Argentina with his wife and their new baby daughter, who was born prematurely.
"I spoke with him yesterday and I think that he will come back on Thursday or Friday morning," Mancini said, before adding: "I am sure."
He continued: "It is important Carlos comes back Thursday or Friday so he can play against Chelsea. He said to me that every day he has been training in Argentina, every morning.
"He had a serious problem but now I think he resolved his problem."
