Stoke No1 Begovic: Man City's Dzeko in top three strikers in world
Begovic told Stoke City's official website: "In my opinion he is one the three best number nines in the world along with Falcao and Robert Lewandowski; so he is somebody that we have certainly got to keep our eye on during the game.
"He scored against me last time at the Etihad Stadium, but he was due one in that game because I have made a few saves against him over the years. Hopefully I can keep him out again this weekend."
