Nasri picked up his fourth assist of the season during Manchester City's shocking 2-2 draw with Burnely on Sunday.

Nasri now has one goal and four assists in his last seven matches in all competitions, though the goal and one assist came during Champions League play, which doesn't help fantasy Premier League owners. Nevertheless, he's fit and playing well, and he'll look to keep it going on New Year's Day against Sunderland.

Nasri assisted on Frank Lampard's 40th-minute goal during Manchester City's 1-0 win over Leicester City on Saturday.

Nasri, who missed time earlier this season because of a groin injury, has been playing very well of late, posting one goal and three assists in his last four matches in all competitions. He'll need to keep up his solid play, with Sergio Aguero (knee), Stevan Jovetic (muscular injury) and Edin Dzeko (calf) all unlikely to play until 2015.

Nasri has recovered from his groin injury and is expected to be in the squad for Manchester City's Capital One Cup match against Newcastle on Wednesday, the club's official website reports.

Nasri had surgery on his groin at the end of September, but has been training with the first team of late, which should allow him to get back Wednesday as a warmup for Sunday's Manchester derby.

Nasri underwent groin surgery Sunday and is expected to miss the next month, the BBC reports.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said earlier in the week that Nasri was training but clearly wasn't 100 percent and Nasri tweeted Sunday saying it went well. He has a tough start to the season anyway and his absence could open up time for Frank Lampard or James Millner.

Nasri will not play in Manchester City's Capital One Cup match against Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday due to a groin injury and he will likely not return until Oct. 4 against Aston Villa, manager Manuel Pellegrini said Tuesday.

Nasri has not officially been ruled out for City's Champions League tie with Roma on Tuesday, but in all likelihood he'll be held out to make sure he's fully fit for a run of Premier League matches.

Nasri picked up an assist on one of Stevan Jovetic's two goals during Manchester City's 3-1 win over Liverpool on Monday.

Nasri is a fine fantasy producer, although he is often overshadowed by Yaya Toure and David Silva, who continue to have higher ceilings.
