Carlos Tevez may be soon to leave Old Trafford but that hasn’t stopped the Argentinean international taking Manchester United one step closer to the Premier League title.
Tevez, who admits that his time with United may come to an end when this season is over, scored the second United goal in their 2 -0 win over Manchester City on Sunday.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s deflected free kick gave the home side the lead before Tevez, who’d already hit the wood work, made the game safe with a powerful 20 yard shot.
Sir Alex Ferguson refused to go in to detail about Tevez’s future, despite that fact that the player himself made these damning comments before the game:
I don’t think I’ll be a United player next season. I’ve done everything I possibly can but they have never made me an offer or given me a contract.
I have not been treated as a member of the family. The fans treat me like family but United have not signed me so they don’t respect me as a footballer.
His two-year deal with the club expires this summer.
Meanwhile, Chelsea made sure of third spot in the league and automatic qualification to the first round of the Champions League with a 4 – 1 win away to Arsenal.
The home side started the brighter but wasted a number of chances before Alex and Nicolas Anelka put the visitors 2 up.
Arsenal’s Kolo Toure put Ashley Cole’s cross into his own net before a Nicklas Bendtner header pulled it back to 3-1.
The Gunners rallied but Chelsea wrapped up the win when Florent Malouda slotted in after Anelka’s shot hit the post.
