Tevez fails to light up City stalemate

Carlos Tevez was named in Manchester City's starting XI for Tuesday's pre-season friendly with Dynamo Dresden, but he could not light up a dull 0-0 draw.

Friendly: Manchester City 0-0 Dynamo Dresden

Tevez has been linked to a move to AC Milan this summer, but City boss Roberto Mancini is adamant he wants to keep the forward as part of his Premier League title-winning squad.

Another outing during pre-season suggests Mancini does intend to call on Tevez when the new campaign gets underway.

Several of City's top stars were on show at the Glucksgas Stadion, with Vincent Kompany anchoring a defence also featuring Kolo Toure and Aleksandar Kolarov, while Yaya Toure supported attacking duo Tevez and Sergio Aguero.

There was a an injury concern when captain Vincent Kompany limped off clutching a hamstring but the Belgian was not seriously injured. The captain was replaced by Karim Rekik on 68 minutes.

There was another moment of temporary concern when Yaya Toure was slow to pick himself up after a meaty challenge in the first half, which was otherwise punctuated only by the odd moment of goalmouth action, most notably when City keeper Costel Pantilimon was forced into a sharp save.

Vladimir Weiss had City's best moment in the second period, latching onto a defence-splitting pass, before sending a looping chip over the keeper, who scrambled back to tip the ball round a post.

Mancini said prior to the match that he had been impressed by the attitude of Tevez since the striker's return for pre-season training.

"After January last year the problems with Carlos were finished," Mancini told City TV. "He came back to Manchester and his behaviour was good. He played a lot of games and scored important goals that helped us win the title. Now he has started the pre-season training very well.''

Elsewhere, Djibril Cisse netted twice as QPR got their pre-season off to a flyer with a 5-0 win against a select Sabah XI. Heidar Helguson, Bobby Zamora and Jay Bothroyd also found the net in a confidence-boosting outing for Rangers' strikeforce.

New signing Park Ji-sung was named captain by Mark Hughes, who also gave a debut to Andrew Johnson. Manchester United loanee Fabio da Silva was introduced as a half-time substitute and set up Cisse's second.

And West Ham were beaten 1-0 by Oxford United at the Kassam Stadium. Sam Allardyce, who revealed before kick-off the Hammers would not be signing Andy Carroll or Dimitar Berbatov, fielded a strong side including the likes of Kevin Nolan and Ricardo Vaz Te, but his team were undone by a first-half strike from Deane Smalley.
