Nasri is not in the 18-man squad for Saturday's match against West Brom.

After being pulled at halftime of Wednesday's Champions League match against Barcelona, Nasri fails to even make the bench Saturday. He seems to have fallen out of favor with manager Manuel Pellegrini, with Frank Lampard getting a rare start Saturday, leaving David Silva and Jesus Navas on the wings.

Nasri had a goal and an assist during Manchester City's 5-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

Nasri got the start in place of the injured James Milner (knee) and made the most of it, constantly finding himself in two-man games with David Silva and Sergio Aguero. Nasri has plenty of talent, but doesn't always get on the scoresheet, which limits his fantasy value for the most part. That being said, he has a goal and assist in back-to-back matches.

Nasri (calf) started and played all 90 minutes of Manchester City's 1-1 draw with Hull City on Saturday, finishing with four shots (one on goal), four key passes, and 10 crosses (two successful).

Nasri got the start ahead of Jesus Navas, though the latter came on after halftime for Fernando. It was a relatively muted performance by City against a struggling Hull side, and they'll need Nasri to produce more Wednesday against Stoke City, their last game before Yaya Toure returns from the Africa Cup of Nations.

Following a calf injury that has kept him out a month, Nasri replaces Jesus Navas in the starting lineup Saturday against Hull City.

All of the Manchester City midfield is dangerous against an opponent as lowly as Hull. Nasri can fill the spot in your lineup formerly filled by Navas.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Friday that Nasri (calf) is fit for Saturday's match against Hull City.

Nasri suffered the injury Jan. 10 against Everton, but returned to first-team training this week to make himself available to face the Tigers. It wouldn't be surprising if he didn't start, but he's a talented midfielder who can make a fantasy impact in the right circumstance.

Nasri said that he is ready to return this Saturday against Hull after overcoming his calf injury, reports the Daily Mail.

Nasri has missed the last three matches due to the injury, but returned to full training at the beginning of the week.

Nasri (calf) is back in training and could face Hull City on Saturday.

The City attack has been a big stagnant since Nasri went down, and while he is a very important piece for the Man City attack, he isn't a big fantasy producer in most standard leagues.

Nasri has been ruled out for up to three weeks due to a calf injury, according to the Daily Mirror.

Nasri will miss out on this weekend's match against his old club, and given the timeframe for his return, also Jan. 31 against Chelsea. James Milner is likely to start in his place.
