Sub hero Dzeko thrilled to contribute to Man City success

Match-winner Edin Dzeko says he is simply happy to be a part of a winning Manchester City side.

The Bosnian striker again came off the bench to rescue the reigning champions with an 87th minute strike that gave his side a 2-1 home win over Tottenham today.

Dzeko has recently been labelled a super-sub and although he is not a fan of the title, he is not too perturbed about being used as a substitute as long as he can contribute to victories.

"It's not the first time, but it's a great feeling," he told Sky Sports of the goal in the come-from-behind win.

"It shows our character that we are strong even when we are losing. I hope next time we will be winning 1-0 and win the game because this is much harder to play.

"Again from a free-kick we conceded a goal, stupid as against Arsenal, and we have to improve there that is for sure.

"After the goal I think we played better, were the better team over 90 minutes, and at the end we deserved it."
