The Montenegro international has had to wait patiently on the sidelines at the Etihad Stadium after picking up a number of niggling knocks since completing a big-money switch from Fiorentina.

Having been unable to put himself in contention for a starting berth, he has seen fellow forwards Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo shine in his absence - with all three off the mark for the season.

Jovetic is, however, finally up and running after bagging a brace in a 5-0 mauling of Wigan Athletic in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday and is now looking to make up for lost time.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "It was difficult for me because I was the last to come here and I was injured, so when they played the first games I was doing preparation.

"Now I am much better and I hope that by playing more I will show much more.

"I feel settled here now. I was accepted from my first day, especially by Matija Nastasic, Aleks Kolarov and Edin Dzeko, but also by the rest of the squad."

City's commanding showing in midweek saw them continue their recent fine run in front of goal - with the target found 12 times in three games - and Jovetic hopes that momentum can be carried into Saturday's Premier League clash with Aston Villa.

He added: "I hope we are going to continue in this way. It was difficult after we won 4-1 against United, but we demonstrated we can change players and win.

"There were so many new players, but the whole squad played very well.

"Now we must forget this game as we have a very important game on Saturday at Aston Villa.

"I hope we can win that one, because the last two away games in the league have ended as a defeat and a draw."

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
