Edin Dzeko is relishing the new competition for places at Manchester City, as he welcomes Sergio Aguero into the team and is ready to continue the great start to the season.
The Bosnian striker struck the first in a 4-0 rout against Swansea City, but the striker is ready to dig deeper to secure more trophies this term.
Fellow forward Aguero also blasted his way through the Welsh defence to secure two goals after coming on as a substitute, and Dzeko is in awe of the Argentine.
He said: "It's amazing for a new player to come on for the last 30 minutes and score two goals.
"I am very happy for him, but I am also happy for City in getting a player like him - he can only help us in the future.
"And he is not even 100% fit yet. In the next games he can only get better and better.
"He scored twice when not fit, so we can't wait to see what he is like at 100%. Every good player is welcome to our team as we want to win titles."
The 25-year-old added that the quest for titles had got off to a good start, and put it down to high fitness levels at the Etihad. Dzeko was also glad to be able to start the campaign with his Manchester City teammates this time around, after joining in the January transfer window last season.
He said: "The beginnings have always been slow for me, and that was the case at City, but this year I feel fit and I feel very good. I feel much better than last season.
"For every player it is important to be fit and have a good pre-season behind him. This summer I have done everything with the team and that makes you feel better.
"I want to improve in every game, but I have started the season well. I try to do my best in every game to help the team."
