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.

Nasri started and played 78 minutes before being replaced by James Milner during Manchester City's 2-0 win over Newcastle on Sunday.

Nasri finished with one shot on the day, which did land on goal, but not much else to show for his play. While he does get involved in the attack, Nasri's fantasy prospects are dwarfed by both Yaya Toure and David Silva, the latter of whom scored the opener on Sunday.

Nasri was left off of the France roster for this summer's World Cup, and said he is more focused on playing for a big club and winning trophies.

Nasri picked up an assist in Manchester City's 3-2 win over Everton on Saturday.

Nasri has an assist in back-to-back matches, and he now has six goals and seven assists in 32 appearances this season. With David Silva and Jesus Navas still sidelined by ankle injuries, Nasri will continue to be an important piece of the City midfield.
