Stevan Jovetic: Manchester City striker fit and raring to go

Stevan Jovetic: Manchester City striker fit and raring to go

The Montenegro international has been plagued by illness and injury since his £22million move from Fiorentina last summer.

But the 24-year-old is now back in contention and after making two successive substitute appearances he is anxious for more game time with a team that has already scored 110 goals this season.

Jovetic said: "It's much easier when you play and score goals but unfortunately for me it's not been a good way to start.

"But you have to stay calm, to believe in yourself, like I did.

"I know I can do so many good things for this club. I hope I will show that in the last four months until the end.

"We have a lot of games and I hope to get my chance, and I hope to play well.

"Of course I've wanted to score but I also need to say thank you to the guys.

"They've done so well in the Premier League and we are playing Barcelona in the Champions League.

"There's a lot of games, so hopefully we'll win a lot of trophies."

Jovetic is competing with Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko, who have scored 25, 23 and 16 goals respectively this term, for a starting spot.

"I'm happy for the other strikers who have got the goals. From now I want to get goals as well and get close to them," he added.

"I had one problem, and then another, but that is the past and I don't want to think about the past.

"I know my value and that the fans will love me."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
