thumbnail Hello,

The French midfielder impressed as the home side ran riot at the Etihad Stadium but insists that the victory was not made sweeter by the fact he used to play for the opposition

Former Arsenal star Samir Nasri excelled in Manchester City's 6-3 win over the Gunners on Saturday but insisted that the victory was not a vengeance mission.

The midfielder continues to receive unfavourable treatment from the Arsenal faithful following his £25 million move from the Etihad Stadium in 2011.

The Frenchman starred in City's demolition of their title rivals as goals from Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Negredo, Fernandinho, David Silva and Yaya Toure put Manuel Pellegrini's side to within three points of their visitors in the lunchtime kick-off.

"It's not revenge against Arsenal," Nasri told Goal. "I don't have hard feelings. If I'm here, it's because of them. It's because of the manager and the confidence that they gave me.

"I'm just happy about our performance that we won the game and that we came back to within three points of Arsenal."

City's enthusiasm was dampened somewhat by an injury to their top scorer, Sergio Aguero, who limped off with a calf problem early in the second half. Nasri stated that the full extent of the Argentine's trouble is not yet known and would not speculate on the damage that he suffered.

"I cannot tell you what he has," said the France international. "It's always difficult to say something just after the game. For something like that you need 48 hours to see exactly what the injury is going to be."
