Edin Dzeko hopes for more to come from Manchester City
Edin Dzeko insisted there is more to come from Manchester City after their emphatic 5-1 victory at Tottenham.
The Bosnian striker was in imperious form at White Hart Lane and Sergio Aguero was also on target as City won their third straight league match.
"Today was something special for me, to score four goals in the Premier League is fantastic," the Bosnian said.
"I think we're getting better and better. I hope we can improve in the next game and try to win every game."
Dzeko made a quiet start to his City career after
signing from Wolfsburg for £27m in January
, but scored twice in seven first-half minutes against Spurs to put his team in command, and has now netted six goals in the opening three league games.
“It was perfect, incredible, he worked for the team”
Roberto Mancini on Edin Dzeko's performance
"It was amazing, we played a fantastic game and deserved to win," he commented.
"When you score four goals against such a good team like Tottenham it's an amazing feeling and I'm very happy, but I'm also very happy because my team won and we have a perfect start with the three wins from three games.
"When I came it was difficult for me, I was new in the best league in the world and I didn't have a pre-season, it was a hard six months.
"Now I feel much stronger and I know the league much better."
Mancini salutes 'perfect' Dzeko
Despite the outstanding win, manager Roberto Mancini was in typically pragmatic mood, highlighting the goal conceded from a corner shortly before the finish.
"We should pay more attention to set-pieces," he said.
The Italian did allow some praise for Dzeko's performance, however, adding: "It was perfect, incredible, he worked for the team, fought against the defenders, he scored four goals, I am happy for him because he's a good guy.
"He is not only good in the air, he keeps the ball, helps the team and scores."
Mancini was also impressed with debutant Samir Nasri and said: "He is a fantastic player, he has a great mentality and wants to win."
