Carlos Tevez, centre, celebrates scoring Manchester City's fourth and his hat trick goal

Tevez could face up to six months in prison after he was arrested on Thursday night on suspicion of driving whilst disqualified. The Argentina striker is due back at Macclesfield police station on Tuesday, but showed no sign of anxiety at the Etihad Stadium, putting in a man-of-the-match performance.

He scored three and also claimed two assists - converted by Aleksandar Kolarov and David Silva respectively - as City swatted Barnsley away with the minimum of fuss, equalling their biggest win of the season.
