Manchester City's Premier League aspirations hace recieved a boost after star striker Carlos Tevez insisted that he was fully focused and previous issues have been resolved . Tevez who handed in a transfer request in December after becoming disillusioned with the club is joint top scorer in the Premier League so far this season with 14 goals so far . The Argentinian striker whose family still reside in South America said " I am happy now. The issue is in the past.I had my discrepancies with the boss. But we spoke as two men and everything is solved and I'm very happy." Manchester City signed Edin Dzeko from Wolfsburg earlier this month for a reported £27M and the Bosnian forward played an important role in City's 4-3 win over Wolves at the weekend . Tevez scored two goals against Wolves and was inspirational as City fought back from the loss of an early goal . The Argentinian has his sights set on finishing the season as Premier League top scorer and commented after the game " I have challenged myself to be the top scorer so I am fighting every day to keep that challenge to myself. Hopefully I will still score many more before the end of the season, that’s my personal challenge." Bookies agree that Tevez has a great chance of winning the race to be top scorer , he is favourite with most firms and 5/2 is the best odds available with online bookmaker . The bookmakers are not yet convinced that Manchester City can maintain a challenge for the Premier League title and Roberto Mancini's team are still available at odds of 7/1 despite currently sitting in joint top position . With more money to spend in the January transfer window , Man City will surely be involved in the title chase until the very end of the season .
