Manchester City could lose Samir Nasri for the festive programme due to injury.

The Daily Mail says Nasri faces a struggle to play any part of the Barclays Premier League champions' festive programme after injuring his groin.

The France international looked back to his best Newcastle last weekend but had to come off in the first half.

Now he has been told he cannot play for two weeks, a prognosis that rules him out of games against Reading, Sunderland and Norwich and leaves him extremely doubtful for the meeting with Stoke on New Year's Day.
