Man City boss Mancini happy to turn to Nasri as Silva replacement

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is happy to turn to Samir Nasri if David Silva can't make today' FA Cup semi with Chelsea.

Nasri has been criticised by Mancini this season but the Frenchman's form in recent weeks has noticeably improved and the manager wants that to continue.

He said: "Samir played better in the last two games and it is important he can play like this because he has quality, he has everything.

"In this moment, we don't know if David can play so Samir will be more important."
