Nasri (leg) is available for Sunday's match against Southampton.

Since returning from a long-term absence from the squad, Nasri's fitness has ebbed and flowed, but the France international should be fit to go against Southampton, having trained all week. He has a goal and two assists in the three matches since returning from his long-term hamstring injury, but has missed the past two matches. With no Yaya Toure or David Silva, Nasri will need to quickly get back up to speed against a strong defensive squad in Southampton.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Nasri has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Stoke City. "Only Samir Nasri is out, he isn’t 100 percent yet," manager Manuel Pellegrini said. "I hope he’ll be back for the next game (against Southampton)."

Nasri had been playing so well since returning to the side after a lengthy layoff with a hamstring injury, but this leg injury will set him back at least Saturday's match against Stoke and it also looks like Tuesday's first leg against Real Madrid. Nasri's influence on the side has been massive as he's provided another legitimate option moving forward, something City desperately needs.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Nasri has been ruled out for Tuesday's match against Newcastle due to a muscular injury.

Nasri has played quite well since returning from his long-term injury, and while he is not expected to be out for long, he's definitely questionable for Saturday's match against Stoke City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Nasri tallied an assist and was issued a yellow card in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Chelsea.

After a lengthy spell on the trainer's table with a hamstring injury that saw him sidelined from October through March, Nasri has come back with a vengeance. In three Premier League matches since his return, he has a goal and two assists —all victories. While the Frenchman has shown a passivity toward playing defense at times, he is as committed and focused as he's been in Manchester over the past three matches and his work rate has paid dividends.

Nasri scored a goal on three shots (one on target) in Saturday's 2-1 victory over West Brom.

Welcome back to the Premier League, Samir Nasri rang out through the Etihad as the French international scored his first goal since Aug. 23 to give the Citizens the lead. He's managed just eight appearances this season thanks to a long-term hamstring concern, but has done well since returning, picking up an assist last weekend against Bournemouth to boot. Nasri might be the missing attacking piece to keep City in the Champions League places.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Nasri picked up an assist on one key pass in 25 minutes off the bench in the Saturday's 4-0 win over Bournemouth.

Aleksandar Kolarov did the majority of the work on the goal himself, despite Nasri credited with an assist. Nevertheless, though, it will be a great confidence boost for the once-outstanding creative midfielder. He's had a nightmare of a season, thus far, and just to see him back on the field is a great news for the Citizens. And while he'll bring a much needed depth to the City's crucial final stage of the season, he's not expected to be a major fantasy factor, in the immediate future at least.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Nasri (hamstring) is available off the bench Saturday versus Bournemouth.

Nasri hasn't been able to stay healthy all season long and hasn't been a factor thus far this season. While his presence will bring a crucial depth for the final stages of the Citizens' season he's not expected to be a fantasy factor, not right away at least.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Nasri has recovered from his hamstring injury and could feature Saturday against Bournemouth.

Nasri has been out since October, so a move right into the starting XI seems unlikely, but he could very well feature off the bench and try to force his way into the starting lineup in the remaining games of the season.
