Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has revealed he was not worried about his goalscoring drought, saying it was "only a matter of time" before he was back on the scoresheet.
The 25-year-old headed home the winner in Monday's 1-0 Barclays Premier League victory at Wigan, his first goal since scoring his side's opener in the 3-2 win over QPR in November.
"We are very much a team unit and we are very much rooting for Edin to do well"
- Joe Hart
"It was just a matter of time. It is always like this. Sometimes you score a lot of goals, sometimes you can't score even from a 100 per cent chance," Dzeko told the Manchester Evening News.
"But that is football. I am happy for me and happy for the team that I scored again and we won the game."
Dzeko's 11th League goal of the season against Wigan gave Manchester City a timely boost following two Cup defeats, and set the leaders up nicely for Sunday's eagerly-anticipated Barclays Premier League contest against third-placed Tottenham.
And City goalkeeper Joe Hart said the team was delighted that Dzeko was back among the goals.
"We are very much a team unit and we are very much rooting for Edin to do well," said Hart.
"We are over the moon for him. That is the kind of thing he does and it is no fluke he scored those goals at the start of the season."
