London – Samir Nasri faces a struggle to play any part in Manchester City’s festive programme after injuring his groin.

The France forward, 25, looked back to his best against Newcastle last weekend but had to come off in the first half.

Now he has been told he cannot play for two weeks, a prognosis that rules him out of games against Reading, Sunderland and Norwich and leaves him very doubtful for the meeting with Stoke on New Year’s Day.

City have four games in 11 days over Christmas and the new year, meaning that Nasri’s injury comes at the worst possible time for a team looking at a six-point gap between themselves and Manchester United at the top of the league. – Daily Mail
