Manuel Pellegrini says that he has a strike force at Manchester City that other sides are envious of.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini believes that he has one of the strongest strike forces in the Premier League.

Having lost Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez in consecutive transfer windows, the Chilean has recruited Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic from Sevilla and Fiorentina respectively this summer.

With Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko already at the club, Pellegrini is certain that many teams are envious of his striking possibilities.

"Yes, I think so, it's very strong," Pellegrini told The Sun. "I know Negredo very well from the Spanish league, so it was not a surprise for me the way he played.

"I think we have very good strikers with [Edin] Dzeko as well. They can play together or we can play one of them with Jovetic or [Sergio] Aguero.

"We have four very good strikers and that's what you need if you play in the Premier League and Champions League as a competitive team."

City beat South China 1-0 in the semi-finals of the Barclays Asia Trophy on Wednesday, thanks to a goal from Dzeko.
