Edin Dzeko got Manchester City off to a flying start with two goals in the opening five minutes – but admitted the rest was uncomfortable for the defending Premier League champions.

“After the sending-off I wasn’t surprised Norwich were still in it in injury time, because it is hard to play with one player less,” said the Bosnian striker. “But we did it once before at West Bromwich where we did very well, and today as well I think we deserved this win.

“I think Norwich played a good game and they were always there, and I think it was a hard game to play in. And when the manager took me off it was hard to watch the last 10 minutes. But we’re happy with the win.”

While the visitors’ fourth was an own goal credited to ‘keeper Mark Bunn, Dzeko left Carrow Road clutching the match ball and determined to claim his hat-trick.

“That’s my opinion and I think it is yours as well,” he added with a smile.


  • Bunn's goal for sure. Two good comments on MOTD . 1. Bunn should have pushed Dzeko's shot around the post for a corner & 2. 3 - 4 with 15 minutes to go we should have piled on the pressure and not putting in 3 crosses that didn't even beat the first defender. Basic football.

  • I`m sure Bunn would be happy to gift-wrap that goal for Dzeko, but it WAS an own-goal! I expect the Greater Manchester Police have sent a task force to Dzeko`s mansion to retrieve the ball for McGnarly and arrest the thief. Lobbo, you`re right about the crosses that didn`t get anywhere. Even the pundits on MOTD highlighted the vast empty spaces waiting for the ball to arrive, with our new striker, Russell Martin, waiting to pounce! We did have 15 minutes to turn the screw, but lost the screwdriver. Btw, I wonder if Little Benno`s crossing needs work on the training ground?? ;-)
