Samir Nasri delighted by Manchester City performance
Sunday 24 November 2013
Midfielder Samir Nasri believes Manchester City are proving what they are capable of at the Etihad Stadium after routing Barclays Premier League rivals Tottenham.
City made a mockery of pre-match predictions that this would be a tight affair with a 6-0 thumping of Spurs to underline their title challenge against a side that have strong designs on a top-four finish.
While the Sky Blues are struggling on their travels, Sunday's thumping win kept City's 100 per cent record at home in tact, with six victories and 26 goals scored at Eastlands this season as they bounced back from a 1-0 defeat at Sunderland last time out.
"It was really good and we showed once again that against the big squads we always respond at home. It's a great result, 6-0, you don't see it that often," Nasri told Sky Sports 1.
"We maintained our great run at home."
Spanish winger Jesus Navas book-ended the scoring in the first and last minute, with his opener coming after just 13 seconds.
Sergio Aguero also bagged a brace, while Sandro's own goal and Alvaro Negredo's curled effort sealed an emphatic win.
"All the goals were really nice, it's difficult to pick one of them," Nasri said.
"We scored six goals but we had a clean sheet as well."
Man-of-the-match Aguero added: "I'm very happy. Now we must continue the same way."
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
