RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dzeko scored in the 11th and 68th minutes during Manchester City's 4-2 win over Hull City on Saturday.

Dzeko is red hot right now, scoring four goals in his last two matches after bagging a brace against Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup. With Stevan Jovetic still battling a hamstring injury, Dzeko should continue to see plenty of playing time up front with Sergio Aguero.

Dzeko (back) started and played 69 minutes of Manchester City's Premier League match against Chelsea on Sunday, taking three shots but none landed on goal.

Dzeko was dealing with a back issue heading into the match, but he was obviously fit enough to start. With Stevan Jovetic continuing to battle a hamstring injury, Dzeko should continue to see enough playing time to keep him relevant in most fantasy formats.

Dzeko felt soreness in his back following Manchester City's Champions League match at Bayern Munich on Wednesday, but he is expected to be available for Sunday's Premier League match against Chelsea, manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday.

Stevan Jovetic has been ruled out with a hamstring injury, leaving Dzeko to likely come off the bench against Chelsea, with Sergio Aguero in the starting XI. Dzeko has yet to score this season, but he gets enough playing time that his first score will come sooner rather than later.

Dzeko is available off the bench for Manchester City's Premier League match against Stoke City on Saturday.

Dzeko picked up a small knock on his thigh last Monday against Liverpool, and with a fully fit Sergio Aguero, manager Manuel Pellegrini can afford to rest Dzeko. With Aguero just returning to the starting lineup, it wouldn't be surprised if Dzeko did feature at some point Saturday.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Friday that Alvaro Negredo is the only injury City are facing, which means Dzeko should be available to face Stoke City.

Dzeko took a boot to the thigh Monday against Liverpool and had to be removed from the game, but it is apparently not serious enough to hold him out. Pellegrini did add that Sergio Aguero may still be limited, which means he and Dzeko could split time next to Stevan Jovetic.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dzeko started Manchester City's Premier League match against Liverpool on Monday, but had to be subbed off after 67 minutes due to a leg injury.

Dzeko took a boot to the side of his leg from Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel, and he had a visible mark on his leg. He will likely undergo further exams Tuesday, and it is unclear if he will have to miss any time. If he does, Sergio Aguero, who subbed on for him Monday, would be inserted into the starting XI alongside Stevan Jovetic.

Dzeko has signed a new four-year contract with Manchester City.

Dzeko scored 26 goals across four competitions for the Citizens last season. Needless to say, the club was eager to reach an agreement that would keep the Bosnian at the Etihad for the foreseeable future. Dzeko had the assist in City's opening goal against Newcastle during opening weekend, and will try to be a handful against Liverpool on Monday.
