The Malaysian giants look set to be without Congolese import Mbele - who was signed despite arriving in Kuala Lumpur injured - for the start of the new M-League season, leaving former Malaysia international Yahyah and recently arrived R. Surenden as the club's principal strikers along with two other new recruits in the shape of Famirul Ashraf Sayuti and Wan Mohd Hoesne Wan Hussian.
"Mbele's absence will be felt but we have enough strikers in the squad as replacements. If I am selected to play upfront, I will be ready to shoulder the responsibility," the 30-year-old told the New Straits Times.
"With or without Mbele, we must do our best and win trophies this season. We cannot play the blame game or make excuses if we fail. As captain, I want my teammates to give 100 percent throughout the season."
After last season's despair, a campaign which saw Selangor finish third in the Malaysia Super League and bow out of both the Malaysia Cup and the FA Cup at the semi-final stage, Amri is desperate for the club to return to winning ways.
"It is important that we get a good start. We were unlucky not to win titles last season and I hope it will be better this season," Yahyah declared.
"We have quite a number of new players in the squad and all of them are responding well in training and friendlies. We are getting better and everyone is happy to play under new coach Irfan Bakti," he added.
Selangor, 32-time winners of the Malaysian Cup, start their new domestic season away to Negeri Sembilan on January 10, and will also feature Lebanese defender Ramez Dayoub who signed from Myanmar's Magway.
