Nasri assisted on Yaya Toure's third goal in Manchester City's 5-0 win over Fulham on Saturday.

They don't get much easier than this, as Nasri calmly passed to Toure after a free kick, only to watch the Ivorian curl a 25-yarder into the back of the net. It was Nasri's fourth assist this season, and first since December 14 against Manchester United.

Nasri (knee) scored in the 67th minute of Manchester City's 2-0 FA Cup win over Chelsea on Saturday.

Nasri has been out since mid-January due to a knee injury, but he was able to return in a little under six weeks, which was roughly 15 days before he was supposed to return. It's a huge boost for City, who will certainly need Nasri on the pitch for this week's Champions League tie with FC Barcelona.

Nasri (knee) has been declared fit to face Chelsea in Saturday's FA Cup match, the Daily Mail reports.

Nasri, who suffered his knee injury in mid-January, was expected to miss up to eight weeks, but a return Saturday will be fewer than six. He'll be a big boost for City, who will get back into Champions League action Tuesday against FC Barcelona.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini said Tuesday that Nasri (knee) is back in full training and progressing well.

Nasri was expected to miss up to eight weeks after suffering the knee injury back on January 12 in a match against Newcastle. With a full return to training, it seems plausible that he could return for Saturday's FA Cup match against Chelsea, which would be just under six weeks since the went down.

Nasri (knee) will not play Saturday at Norwich City, nor Wednesday against Sunderland, but may be able to return for next Saturday's FA Cup match against Chelsea.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini, who gave the timeline Friday, said he expects Nasri to be back in training next week, which is an incredibly fast turnaround from his knee injury, which was supposed to sideline him for at least eight weeks. If he is able to play a week from Saturday, it will be only five weeks after he suffered the injury.

Nasri (knee) returned to light training, sparking speculation that he is recovering faster than the expected eight-week layoff, according to the Mirror.

Manchester City faces Barcelona in the Champions League on February 18, and while that could be too soon for the midfielder to make a full return, prospects of a faster than expected recovery are looking good.

Nasri is expected to miss the next eight weeks after suffering a knee injury in Sunday's Premier League match against Newcastle, Sky Sports reports.

Nasri partially ruptured a knee ligament on a challenge by Newcastle's Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa. Nasri actually tweeted the news out himself, saying the good news is that he'd be back in eight weeks, instead of missing the entire season. He is expected to miss a number of big matches, including the first leg of Manchester City's Champions League Round of 16 against Barcelona on February 18. However, there's an outside chance he could return for the second leg on March 12.
