Manchester City skipper Carlos Tevez has welcomed Edin Dzeko's arrival last month.

Tevez says he's excited playing with Dzeko, Mario Balotelli and David Silva.

He told City's website: "Of course it is always a big source of motivation when you play alongside great players like these two and David. We have a forward line that can do a lot of damage to opposing teams.

"It is a period in my career where I have begun to enjoy things more. I am happy and very relaxed as a result of the football I am producing.

"We are right in there battling it out for a Champions League place. That is what the team is aiming for and where the team ought to be."
