Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is delighted with the late season form of Edin Dzeko.

In City's crucial last three games, when they have seized control of the title race from Liverpool, Dzeko has scored five - doubles against Villa and Everton, and another at Crystal Palace - and now has 26 for the season overall.

Pellegrini said: "I think it was very important at the beginning of the season to have a good squad - more than a team - a squad.

"At this moment Edin is in a very high level of performance, he is doing very well.

"In other moments it was Alvaro Negredo or Kun Aguero, so I think all the players are involved."
