Nasri given three-match ban after no appeal

SAMIR NASRI will serve a three-match suspension after Manchester City decided not to appeal his sending off at Norwich on Saturday when he was dismissed for an alleged headbutt.

Roberto Mancini had hinted the club would appeal but that is not the case and Nasri will miss out on home dates against Stoke and Watford as well as a clash with former club Arsenal at the Emirates.

City's record with Nasri this season reads: W8 D7 L4 and without: W5 D3 L1

Marcelo Romero's wait for a first win should end against Las Palmas. Malaga were excellent in their 1-1 draw at Villarreal and, despite an 11-game winless streak, they look to be improving. Malaga's record at La Rosaleda is decent enough whereas Las Palmas have lost seven of their ten road trips in the league.
