Nasri feels relief at Man City's derby day victory

Samir Nasri admits he enjoyed helping Manchester City to a 4-1 derby victory over United on Sunday. Nasri scored City's fourth goal which was a far cry from last season's equivalent fixture, when Nasri turned away from Robin van Persie's injury-time free-kick and diverted the Dutchman's shot past his own keeper Joe Hart, sealing a win for the visitors.

"It's a different feeling from last year, and a different feeling for me as well," said Nasri.

"Last year I was involved in the third goal in a bad way, so this was a little revenge. I just want to share this moment with our fans.

"Last year was a little bit sad because we were losing 2-0 and came back, but in the last minute Robin scored that free-kick.

"This year it was not the same scenario, and we are very happy."
