Arsenal playmaker Nasri ready to live up to reputation

Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri says moving to England has improved his defensive game.

Nasri also accepts it's time to start living up to his reputation.

He told L'Equipe: "Nobody can criticize me for not defending, I have to make tackles. In England, you have no choice.

"At 17 years-old, people perhaps asked too much of us. But today it's normal, we are 22 years-old, we must show that we have the talent."
