Samir Nasri happy to get derby revenge

Samir Nasri said revenge was sweet for him as he made amends for his derby disappointment last year with a starring role in Sunday’s 4-1 thrashing of Manchester United.

Curtis: The City is blue

Okwonga: Overwhelmed at the Etihad
Brewin: Three things we learned

The French midfielder scored Manchester City’s fourth goal and played a part in each of the first three at the Etihad Stadium.

It was a far cry from his first Manchester derby last December when he deflected in his former Arsenal team-mate Robin van Persie’s injury-time winner and was blamed by former manager Roberto Mancini, who complained City only had “two-and-a-half men” in their defensive wall.

And Nasri told British national newspapers: “It’s a different feeling from last year, and a different feeling for me as well.

“Last year I was involved in the third goal in a bad way, so this was a little revenge. I just want to share this moment with our fans.

“Last year was a little bit sad because we were losing 2-0 and came back, but in the last minute Robin scored that free-kick. This year it was not the same scenario, and we are very happy.”

Nasri believes City’s emphatic win shows they are title contenders.

He added: “It was a big statement. We have sent a message to our rivals that this year we can be a force. To win like that is always special.

“We showed what good players we have in our team because we put in a very good performance.”
