Dzeko insists Man City cannot afford injuries
Dzeko is hoping for more match action in the second-half of the season.
The ex-Wolfsburg striker, 25, told The Sun: "The most important thing of all is to avoid any long-term injuries to players.
"Every player at City is very important for the team and the key in the title race will be that everyone stays healthy.
"There are still a lot of games left but we're in good shape thanks to our very good start."
