Jovetic hungry for more

first_img He underlined that return to form and fitness by setting up City’s 3-1 win over Barclays Premier League title rivals Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Monday with the first two goals. Jovetic said: “I was happy with pre-season and against Newcastle I played well but didn’t score. “Now I have scored two but I am going to forget this because in five days we have another game against Stoke and it won’t be easy. “This was a victory for the group, the team, and three points is the most important.” Jovetic pounced on a defensive error by Liverpool debutant Alberto Moreno to fire City ahead after 41 minutes. He doubled the lead by rounding off a fine move 10 minutes into the second half and Sergio Aguero came off the bench to add City’s third after 69 minutes. Liverpool pulled one back with a late Pablo Zabaleta own goal but City had underlined their superiority by then and the potential significance of a win over last season’s runners-up was not lost. Jovetic told City TV: “It was a great game against a big team like Liverpool. The Montenegro international is determined to make up for lost time and make his mark with the champions after an injury-ravaged first year at the club. Jovetic managed just six goals in 18 appearances after his £22million move from Fiorentina last term but is now looking sharp after playing a full part in pre-season. Press Association Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic is hungry for more after his match-winning double strike against Liverpool. “I think we played very well and at the end this was a game of six points. “I think Liverpool are going to be back for the title. It is important when you play against them to beat them.” Zabaleta, who could do little about the own goal as Rickie Lambert’s header cannoned back into him off Joe Hart, was impressed with Jovetic’s contribution. Jovetic missed out last season as Aguero, Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko thrived but Zabaleta believes he can really shine this time. The Argentinian said: “I can see him playing really well even in training. He is doing great during the week. He is very hungry to play games this season and score goals. “We know we have four strikers in the team. We have a very strong squad. “I think this is great for the team because we are going to play a lot of games this season and I think the manager will rotate players during the games. “I think we need all of them in a good moment. For the strikers it is always important to score goals because it will help them to have more confidence.” Aguero’s goal came just 23 seconds after he was introduced and was his second as a substitute this term after striking against Newcastle in City’s opener. After suffering a series of muscle injuries in the second half of last season and another at the World Cup in the summer, Aguero’s return to action continues to be managed by manager Manuel Pellegrini. Pellegrini still considers last season’s top scorer to be in pre-season and is not rushing him back into the starting line-up. Aguero said: “I am feeling better. I’m training good and feeling good. “I wish to continue like this as I haven’t done a proper pre-season for ages.” City were due to assess a thigh injury suffered by Dzeko following a clash with Liverpool’s Martin Skrtel but Pellegrini said after the game the problem was not serious. last_img read more

Reds seek cause of Sturridge woe

first_img He recently suggested his problems could be hereditary as his father, a trainee at Birmingham, and two uncles Dean and Simon – both professional footballers – also suffered the same problems. Rodgers admits the club will now use the next couple of months to explore every avenue in an attempt to find a solution to the problem but the manager absolved the player of any blame. “It is extremely unfair. He has just been extremely unfortunate,” said the Reds boss. “The last time he played was August (31) and he is a player who does not want to be out for this length of time. “There is no-one more frustrated than him at this present time. I spoke to him today and he was as down as I have seen anyone in terms of not being able to help the team. “I think now is the time for him and us to go away to see what more we can do to get him onto the pitch consistently. “He is world-class talent but he can only fulfil that if he is playing games – but there is no-one who wants that more than Daniel; he wants to be working and playing. “We need to look to find the answers to allow him over a consistent period of time to perform here at Liverpool. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists striker Daniel Sturridge has been unfortunate with his latest injury but accepts there is a chronic issue which needs to be addressed. Press Association The England international will not play again until 2015 after a new thigh strain this week ruled him out for six weeks. It is the ninth separate but similar injury the 25-year-old has had in his career. “Daniel has had up to nine injuries on that same thigh over a period time, not just over the last six or seven months. “We have to look across his time as a young player and see where we can find ways to get him out there playing.” While the club’s medical staff will look deeply into the problem it is likely Liverpool will also explore external specialist advice to get to the root of the cause. “There are many different ways of dealing with players. I am very proud of my medical and sports science team here – we have shown our ability to get players on to the field is second to none,” added Rodgers. “Unfortunately for the likes of Daniel over a number of years he has been unable to have that fitness that is going to allow him to play a consecutive number of games. “There are maybe cases due to a player’s make-up genetically where it can be difficult. “Hopefully in this adverse moment we can find a way that allows a programme over a period of time that allows him to play and train. “With him being out we need to refocus on the players who are fit and available. “We can’t cry about it, we just need to work really hard as a team with the players who are fit and look to get results.” Rodgers dismissed speculation he could recall Belgium international Divock Origi from his season-long loan spell at Lille as that was a prerequisite of the £10million deal they struck with the French club in the summer. For that to change the Ligue 1 side would have to concede to a new agreement, with Liverpool having to pay considerable compensation, and they have shown no appetite to entertain such an option. “I don’t think there is any (chance). It was never the case,” said the Reds boss. “When he was signed – and there was no discussion – it was one where he had to stay at Lille. “I’ve seen reports saying he may come back early but that was never the case – one of the reasons we were able to sign the player was that he stayed there all season. “As far as I am concerned that is still the case.” That means there is extra pressure on Mario Balotelli, who will be assessed over the next 48 hours to see whether he has fully recovered from the hamstring injury which forced him to leave international duty with Italy early. Balotelli is yet to score a Premier League goal since his £16million move from AC Milan. However, the misfiring Italian may at last be close to getting the extra support he needs up front after Rodgers confirmed fellow summer signing Rickie Lambert was due for more action in the coming weeks. “A lot of the focus this season has been on players who are injured and a player who is no longer here (Luis Suarez),” he said. “I need to ensure my time is devoted to the players who are fit and available. “Rickie will get an opportunity now – we have so many games in an exciting period and he will feature in those heavily.” last_img read more
