Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko admits Sergio Aguero’s absence is a huge blow for the club.

Aguero pulled out in the second-half of last Saturday’s 6-3 win over Arsenal at the Etihad and could face up to eight weeks on the sidelines as a result of a calf injury.

Bosnia-Herzegovina international Dzeko admits the Argentine striker, who is City’s leading goalscorer with 19 goals so far this season, will be missed but believes Manuel Pellegrini’s men have enough quality in their squad to fill up any vacuum left due to his time on the sidelines.

Edin Dzeko Finished the 2011/12 Season (When City Won the League) as the Second Highest Manchester City Goal Scorer Behind Aguero.

“Sergio has had an amazing season, scoring a lot of goals, and he is an important player for us,” Dzeko told several UK news tabloids.

“That’s life, and now we have to try to play games without him, and try to win.

“This is very bad news for the team, but there are a lot of players who want to play,”

The 27-year-old, who grabbed a brace in City’s League Cup win over Leicester on Tuesday, is however determined to fill the void.

“I am happy to score two (against Leicester)- that’s my job,” added Dzeko. “I hope it means I am back among the goals. When I’m playing, I’m trying always to score goals.

“I am a striker that has scored goals all my life and I love to do it. When I get a chance I try to do my best.

“We have a superb squad and recently have scored a lot of goals.”
