Kyle Walker is relieved he no longer has to deal with the "nightmare" threat of Sergio Aguero in games.
Right-back Walker now has the task of creating goals for the prolific Argentinian having left Tottenham for Manchester City over the summer.
Aguero, who is just one short of equalling City's all-time goalscoring record of 177, has tormented Spurs since arriving in England in 2011, netting nine times against the Londoners.
Walker said: "To play against he is a nightmare. Facing him numerous seasons, he always seemed to score against us. It was frustrating.
"Having him on the same team now is a big bonus, he is a quality player. You see what he has done in the Premier League.
"You know if things aren't going well he is the kind of player who can produce that bit of magic for us, put us that goal up or pull us back into the game."
Aguero has scored six times in six appearances this season, including a hat-trick in a 6-0 win at Watford. He will get a chance to pull level with the club record mark of Eric Brook, which has stood since 1939, in Tuesday's Champions League Group F clash against Shakhtar Donetsk at the Etihad Stadium.
