Edin Dzeko hopes that his first Premier League goal is a 'new beginning' in his career with Manchester City.

The Bosnian, a £27million January signing from Wolfsburg, was the match-winner in Easter Monday's 1-0 victory over Blackburn at Ewood Park, as he broke his scoring duck.

Dzeko's struggles had been compared that of Chelsea's £50million man, Fernando Torres, who opened his Blues account against West Ham on Saturday.

But now City's striker wants to look to the future and hopes to go on to bigger and better things with his club.

He told Sky Sports 1 "It's football. Torres scored a lot of goals at Liverpool and changed club. I'm happy for him too because I know what the pressure is.

"Now we have to look at the future. Today was very good. It is a new beginning for me and for City."

Roberto Mancini's City are now four points clear of Tottenham in fourth place and Dzeko said: "I'm very happy that this goal helped my team to win the game.

"Sometimes it's difficult, I'm not the first who didn't make the best start but I'm happy because I scored today and helped the team."
