Man City's Nasri urges Man U to win balance games to set up virtual Etihad finalMar 23, 12:35 pm
London, Mar 23(ANI): Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has challenged rivals Manchester United to win their remaining games, so that the Manchester derby next month at Etihad Stadium could be a virtual final for the Premier League title this season.Nasri invigorated City's title hopes by scoring a crucial 86th-minute winner during Wednesday's 2-1 win against Chelsea. Nasri believes City's recent fight backs against Sporting Lisbon in Europa League, and against Chelsea in the league has sent a clear message to Sir Alex Ferguson's players after they pipped City for the first position."It's a signal to United that we are here and we will be here until the end." Nasri said. "It was important that we won the game to stay in touch with United after their result at the weekend," The Telegraph quoted Nasri, as saying."But you know what? I hope they win all their games, and that we win all of ours, so we can play a final here. It will be fantastic for the fans, and for us as well," he said. "It will be more interesting for everyone if they win all of their games, but I know United will be there until the end - they have the experience and they have a manager who has won everything for 25 years," he added.Nasri said City is aware that United are not going to drop many points now, since they don't have any tricky fixtures ahead, and most importantly, they have the required experience to perform in such matches."Even if I said I hope they will lose, sometimes you have to be realistic, and I don't think they will lose too many games. First of all, because they don't have any really difficult games, and secondly because they have experience of that type of game," Nasri said. (ANI)
