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.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Friday that Nasri will not play in Saturday's Premier League match against Hull City due to his groin injury.

Nasri is unlikely to play in Tuesday's Champions League match against Roma as well, though he has a shot to return Oct. 4 against Aston Villa.

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 has said he has decided to not play international football after a troubling recent past with France, and will instead focus on spending more time preparing for his club, reports the Daily Mail.

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.
