Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri says he's rediscovered his best form under manager Manuel Pellegrini.

The Frenchman has shone for City this season and was particularly impressive in the 4-1 derby demolition of Manchester United a fortnight ago.

Nasri said: "I am more confident with this manager. He has given me a lot of freedom.

"I'm a guy who likes to have affection with the manager. I like a manager who likes to talk about what's good and what's wrong.

"I'm still young and learning every day. When you have a manager who will talk it's always good for a player."
