London: Manchester City`s injury problems up front were exacerbated on Saturday when Edin Dzeko injured himself while warming up prior to their Premier League game at Leicester City.

The Bosnian striker had only been called into the starting XI to deputise for top scorer Sergio Aguero, who has been ruled out for up to six weeks after damaging ligaments in his knee.

With Montenegrin forward Stevan Jovetic rested for the game at Leicester due to a minor muscular problem, 18-year-old Spanish striker Jose Pozo was handed a first league start.

City, the defending champions, went into the weekend three points below leaders Chelsea in the table and bidding for a seventh consecutive victory in all competitions.
