Edin Dzeko for Manchester City
Widely renowned as the “Super-Sub” now – Edin Dzeko is delivery the goods for Manchester City from the bench this season. Even more reason for him to stay there – his record this season is unbelievable. He’s now scoring a goal every 55 minutes for Manchester City in the 2012/13 Premier League season and that is the MOST often for any player who’s attempted over 15 shots at goal.
Dzeko was, without doubt, one of the Heroes of the day. His two goals came in an 11 minute cameo averaging a goal every 5.5 minutes and also managed five attempts at goal in those 11 minutes (an attempt every 2 minutes). His shooting accuracy was at 60% whilst his chance conversion was 40% – an excellent 11 minute performance and this seems to be Dzeko’s role; come on against a tired defence and let City’s creativity do the rest. They lay on the chances and Dzeko finishes them – 5 goals this season for Edin now.
