The Frenchman was at his dazzling best during the Sky Blues' 5-2 win over CSKA Moscow.
Nasri told City's website: "As a team, we've progressed and even if the past two seasons have been tough and we've had difficult groups, if we work as a team, we have time to get better and better because the next round isn't until February.
"Everyone played with lots of confidence this evening and we have a manager who tells us what is good and what is bad, so we've moved on as individuals and as a team.
"Personally, I'm very happy and I think that is showing in my game. I feel loved and I'm trying my best each time I go out so it's all positive."
