Charity Shield 2013 – Community Shield Update
Man City 1-0 Swansea City
Carlos Tevez of Man City celebrated scoring the winning goal during the Barclays Premier League match between Manchester City and Swansea City at the Etihad Stadium on October 27, 2012 in Manchester, England.
Carlos Tevez came through with the only goal in the clash with a stunning strike from 25 yards after a scoreless first hour.
City earned a clean sheet – only the second of its season — after Joe Hart saved twice from Michu at Etihad Stadium resulting in a 1-0 victory for City..
Mancini explained his team’s slow tempo saying City were at a disadvantage after playing midweek.
“Our performance in the first half was so-so because I think we were so tired but in the second half we played better, we had a lot of chances to score,” Mancini said. “In this moment, when you are in a difficult moment, after a defeat in the Champions League, it is important we start to win quickly. We played three days ago and Swansea played very well. They were fresh, so it was important to take these three points. We now have one week when we can recover and I hope we can recover a couple of (injured) players for the next game and we can work.”
“Tevez played well but Carlos also played well against West Bromwich,” Mancini said. “He worked hard for the team. It is an important goal and I am happy for him.”
Manchester City is in third place in the Premier League table ahead of the Spurs in fourth. Chelsea remain in first, and Manchester United have moved up to second.
