Edin Dzeko does not want to be known as Manchester City's super-sub - and first team coach David Platt insists the striker will get his fair share of starts for the Barclays Premier League champions.
Dzeko is City's leading scorer with six goals this season but four of those goals have come from the bench including two in Saturday's 2-1 win at West Brom. The Bosnia international was introduced with 11 minutes remaining and within 60 seconds had equalised before converting an injury-time pass from Sergio Aguero for the winner.
Dzeko, who also scored the winner at Fulham as a substitute, said: "I always used to play from the beginning (for Wolfsburg) and I scored a lot of goals - not as a sub. In the last few games the situation has been like this and I'm just happy to be scoring goals. But I will never be a super-sub, I want to play."
