The 24-year-old forward struggled with injuries after moving to the Etihad Stadium from Fiorentina last summer, but he is expecting to be a key player in Manuel Pellegrini's side in this campaign as City look to retain the Premier League title.
"I don't want to speak about last year, because I have said so many times what happened," Jovetic told members of the media. "I just want to look to the future.
"I am happy to be here and I know that I am going to be an important player for this club, and I am happy to be a part of this team.
"Of course, I am expecting so much from me this season, I expect to score so many goals."
Jovetic was handed a start as City kicked off their campaign with a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United on Sunday.
