Tevez cut for Golden Boot after Shield gem
MANCHESTER CITY beat ten-man Chelsea 3-2 in a frantic Community Shield clash on Sunday and Carlos Tevez was the man who caught the eye of punters.
Tevez scored City’s second goal after Branislav Ivanovic was sent off for Chelsea and the superb effort saw bookmakers running for cover.
BetVictor are 12-1 from 20-1 about Tevez winning the Golden Boot and Paddy Power’s 18-1 quickly became 16-1 which remains the joint-best price about the Argentinian bad boy.
Bet365 chopped Tevez to 100-30 from 5-1 to be City’s top league goalscorer, while the same firm are offering 8-11 about Fernando Torres reaching 13 top-flight goals this term after he earlier broke the deadlock at Villa Park.
