Mancini: No problem with Tevez

Roberto Mancini insisted there was no problem between him and hat-trick hero Carlos Tevez after the pair appeared to exchange words when the striker was substituted in the 5-0 victory over Barnsley.

• Tactics Board: Wingless wonders

Tevez was in top form as he registered his fifth treble for the club, a few days after being arrested on suspicion of driving whilst disqualified, as goals from David Silva and Aleksandar Kolarov compounded the Championship side's misery.

But Mancini, who famously fell out with Tevez last season, said their relationship was fine. "I asked him if he had a problem (injury), but he said no.'' Mancini explained: "Three goals for Carlos are good for him.''

But City assistant boss David Platt said he was replaced due to injury: "His hamstrings just tightened up at the end, which is why we took him off. Hopefully with a couple of days test he will be back again and ready for next week.''

Mancini said he was "very pleased'' with his side's display. The City boss added: "After the game it's easy, but before it's never easy. For this reason it's important to have good concentration. The other team don't have anything to lose.''

Defender Kolo Toure paid tribute to Tevez as he clicked into clinical mode. Toure told ESPN: "He's a great player. We know what he can do and he's shown that again.

"It was a tough game. Barnsley came here and they put us under pressure. But we had a good response by scoring the first goal and the second goal killed the game.

"(The early goal) made a big difference because when you play against that kind of team you need to knock them down from the first minute, which we did and after that they lost confidence.''

Toure's contract is up at the end of the season and he said: "I hope something will happen.''

Barnsley boss David Flitcroft accepted City outclassed his side from start to finish. "I've got a dressing room of players who are all in agreement we've come up against world stars,'' Flitcroft said.

"They came out in the second half and still wanted to put us to the sword. If they're the second best team in the country at the moment I would not like to have played Manchester United. Some of the football was incredible.

"They were just breathtaking, scintillating in the way they moved the ball.''
