Roberto Mancini has revealed he expects more from Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri as the France international prepares to make his return from injury in the Premier League fixture with Everton, the Guardian has reported.

Nasri has missed City’s last two games due to a calf injury but Mancini confirmed the former Arsenal midfielder has recovered well enough to be considered for selection against the Toffees, the newspaper adds.

Mancini spoke of his admiration for Nasri as a player and rejected the suggestion that he has struggled to replicate the form he showed at Arsenal since his move to the Etihad Stadium, but did say he felt Nasri was capable of a lot more.

In my opinion we are talking about a top, top player here. And if he wants he can change every game,” Mancini said. He added: “But I think he can do better. He has played some good games for us but he can do better because he has everything.

Nasri left Arsenal for City in the summer of 2011, having played 125 for Arsene Wenger’s side, scoring 27 goals in the three years he spent with the Gunners. For City, Nasri has made 60 appearances, finding the net on nine occasions.
