Nasri set to miss Arsenal showdown

BY foxsports • September 21, 2012

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri seems certain to miss Sunday's Premier League encounter with former club Arsenal.

Nasri limped out of the Champions League defeat to Real Madrid on Tuesday night with a hamstring problem.

And, whilst the problem is not serious, manager Roberto Mancini feels this weekend will come too early for the France international.

"I do not think he will be ready for Sunday," said Mancini.

"We will try but it is difficult.

"I hope he will be okay for next week."
