Manchester City's Ivorian striker Wilfried Bony said Sunday he is confident of resuming his goalscoring rhythm once he settles in at his new club.

The 26-year-old joined Manchester City in January after producing a string of strong displays with Swansea City during 2014, scoring 20 goals, making him the Premier League's top scorer in 2014.      

"I’ve only been here for two weeks, so I’m just settling in, getting to know everyone better, and they are getting to know me, and what my strengths are, too," Bony told the club's official website Sunday.

"This is a great move for me, but I need to work hard, take my chances when they come along and it will get easier as I get to know my teammates better and get a better understanding." 

The international striker who helped Ivory Coast win their first Nations Cup title since 1992 after beating West African neighbours Ghana 9-8 on penalties following a 0-0 draw revealed that he faced a similar situation in his debut with Swansea City 18 months ago. 

"When I first came to England there was big pressure because I was coming from Holland to the Premier League."

"At Swansea, I didn’t score in the first few games, so there was more pressure again. But it’s just something you have to live with by improving and doing things better."
