Edin Dzeko does not feel he is under more pressure to perform following the return from the wilderness of former Manchester City captain Carlos Tevez.
The Argentine striker is available for selection once more having been suspended by the club and fined significantly after a very public fallout with City manager Roberto Mancini.
Tevez has not featured for the Citizens since October after refusing to warm-up against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena but he and Mancini have seemingly put their differences aside.
The City boss, of course, already has a wealth of goalscoring talent to choose from with the likes of Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and Dzeko at his disposal, and Tevez's return will only bolster an impressive forward department.
And Dzeko certainly feels that competition for places will benefit City in their pursuit of a maiden Premier League crown.
"It's not pressure, it's just that he can bring quality to the team," said Dzeko, according to skysports.com.
"We are all one team trying to play together and it's good that we scored three because in the end goal difference could be the key."
Dzeko netted for in the 3-0 weekend defeat of Blackburn Rovers at the Etihad Stadium, while Tevez failed to feature.
