City have won just one of their last six league games, leaving them well adrift of Jose Mourinho’s side as they chase a third top flight title in four years. The Frenchman scored in Wednesday’s 4-1 win over Stoke City, and hopes the win will help kick start their title chase.
Nasri, who was quoted by the Guardian, said: “I’m a big fan of Mourinho but I am not impressed with his team, not at all. We have played them twice, one time with 10 men, and we were better than them.
“Then we played them at the Bridge, and we were better than them. When I have seen some of their games, I don’t think they are that fantastic – they are just strong and have a good striker up front.
“For me they are not special at all, and I think they are going to make some mistakes. We just have to perform, to win our games, and see what’s going to happen. This title will be like this until the end of the season. No one will win the league 10 games before the end of the season.
“Two months ago we were eight points behind Chelsea and came back and went level with them. Now we are seven points behind but are not going to make big talk about it. We will just try to get as many points as possible and wait for the mistake.
“They won in the last minute against Everton, so maybe next time they will draw. We just have to win our games and see what will happen. The season is still long, they have the Champions League and the final of the Capital One Cup as well, so have a lot of games to play.
“If we reach 90 points we will be champions of England. If we win all of our games, it will put pressure on Chelsea. Sometimes we lack consistency but we are improving and next week we will have Yaya [Toure] and [Wilfried] Bony back and are really confident about the future.”
