Dzeko not feeling pressured by returning Tevez

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko denies feeling under any extra pressure following the return to training of Carlos Tevez, according to the Independent.

Dzeko is quoted as saying: “It’s not pressure, it’s just that [Tevez] can bring quality to the team… it’s good you have so many quality players around you.” The Bosnian, who came off the bench to score City’s third goal of a 3-0 win over Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, added: “We are all one team trying to play together and it’s good that we scored three because in the end goal difference could be the key.” The victory over Blackburn kept City ahead of rivals Manchester United in the Premier League title race.

The former Wolfsburg forward joined City in January 2011 and has scored 24 goals in 54 appearances for the Premier League leaders, including finding the net 18 times in 33 games this season. Despite those statistics, Dzeko has found himself out of Roberto Mancini’s starting XI for the past two Premier League matches, but after a run of 11 games without scoring between November and January, Dzeko has scored five goals in his last eight games in all competitions. The 25-year-old is City’s second highest scorer this season, behind Sergio Aguero, has 21 goals in 37 games.
