Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says he can get Edin Dzeko back to his very best.

Although Pellegrini refused to get carried away with the 4-0 win, Dzeko's man of the match-winning performance was one aspect that did leave him purring.

"I trust Edin Dzeko," Pellegrini declared, "it was a pity he didn't score because he had a lot of chances and he played very well.

"We knew with the ball that he's a very good player but I think he played very well without the ball tonight. He had some important chances and he deserved to score today.

"I spoke to him when I first arrived and I told him that he will do very well for us.

"I am sure we are now going to see the Edin Dzeko that City bought from Wolfsburg two years ago."
