Does this Man City star need a helping hand?

With Edin Dzeko proving Manchester City players are struggling to keep count of the goals galore at the Etihad Stadium, credit card company Capital One have offered them a helping hand by producing the first ever football abacus.

Dzeko suffered a mathematical mishap following Manchester City’s 6-0 Capital One Cup Semi-Final victory against West Ham United. When interviewed after the match, the Bosnian confused viewers by commending his teammates for an impressive 5-0 win, seemingly forgetting his own last minute sixth goal.

“It’s not easy to win 5-0 at home against another Premier League team,” Dzeko said.

To help Edin and the rest of the City team the aptly named “Adding Dzeko” abacus, from League Cup title sponsors Capital One, will help the team keep track of their scores throughout the rest of the season.

Jaidev Janardana, Chief Marketing Officer at Capital One, said: “After scoring 16 goals in four Capital One Cup games it is no wonder Manchester City’s players are struggling to keep count. Hopefully the abacus will prove useful for their stars for the remainder of the season.
