Nasri out for eight weeks

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri expects to be out for around eight weeks after suffering a serious knee injury in Sunday's 2-0 Premier League win at Newcastle United.

The 26-year-old was carried off the pitch on a stretcher following a tackle by Newcastle defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa towards the end of the match at St James' Park.

"Thank you everyone for your kind words and overwhelming support, I suppose it's kind of good news that I will be out around eight weeks," the French international said on his official Twitter account on Monday.

City top the Premier League by one point ahead of Chelsea.
