Edin Dzeko accepts he must now battle Carlos Tevez for a place in Manchester City's starting XI.

And what effect is the prospect of a fourth big-money striker breathing down their necks having?

Dzeko said: "It's not pressure, it's just that he can bring quality to the team. We are all one team trying to play together.

"It's good to have so many quality players around you. But hopefully my goals are doing the talking for me."
