Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says he is ok with the recent performances of Edin Dzeko despite him not scoring in 10 appearances.

The Bosnian international kicked off the season with a bang, scoring 13 goals in 16 matches (in all competitions), but has not added to tally since November 5 .

Ahead of Sunday's FA Cup derby with Manchester United, Mancini is not too perturbed with Dzeko's dip in scoring form.

"I am happy with Edin," he said. "He didn't score against Liverpool (on Tuesday), but he was really strong.

"He played and worked for the team. This is very important for me. I am sure he will start to score very quickly."
