Nasri hails Aguero-Negredo partnership

Samir Nasri has told the Manchester Evening News he believes Manchester City have the finest strike duo in England in the in-form pair of Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo.

 Curtis: Sailing Towards the Light

City have scored 12 goals in their last two games, a 7-0 thrashing of Norwich and a 5-2 victory over CSKA Moscow,  and Negredo’s hat trick against the Russian side took his tally to five goals in his three matches.

Aguero has scored nine times in his last six appearances and is the Premier League’s joint top scorer along with Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge.

But while the Anfield alliance of Sturridge and Luis Suarez and the Manchester United forward line of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney have been touted as the most potent pairing in the country, Nasri is convinced City have the deadliest duo.

The France international told the Manchester Evening News: “I think Negredo and Aguero are really complete together because one is small and quick with good feet and the other one is just a beast who can keep the ball and score goals.

“In the last couple of games they have been banging in goals for fun, so maybe people should watch the game a little bit more and stop talking only about other teams’ strikers, even though I respect them a lot. For me Negredo and Aguero are the best.”

Nasri himself has been in fine form and has dismissed suggestions he and David Silva are too similar to play together, arguing it suits City to have them both in the starting XI.

He added: “I don’t think it’s difficult at all to play with David. When I first arrived here, we played a lot together and we won the title.

“When you are a club like Man City and you play a lot of possession football, it’s better to have two play-makers on the pitch to help keep the ball and can make something happen with a pass or with a piece of skill so for me it’s not a problem.

“The style we are playing suits my game and it suits David’s because when you have the ball, there is always a solution and that’s how it needs to be if you want to play attractive football.

“We play one-touch, two-touch or whatever is needed to move the ball forward and at pace higher up the pitch. It’s a good mentality and we have to keep it up.”
