City’s Champions League future isn’t as straight forward as ‘beat Roma and we go through’ is it, but the long and short is that we need to win in Rome.

There’s going to be huge pressure on us, with great expectation as well now but Samir Nasri is convinced that if we go about thing ‘our way’ we’ll get the job done and get the win, which ‘should’ see us through.

If we don’t win and therefore do no progress then the blame, for him, has to lie with the players and not Manuel Pellegrini, who will come under increasing pressure if we fail in the Champions League again.

Nasri told the Daily Mail: ‘If we play our game, we will win against Roma. The greatest risk is to play with pressure and to have this apprehension.

‘If we don’t ask questions, and we play our game, then we will do it. We have more qualities.

‘If we are eliminated from the Champions League, this is not the fault of the coach, it is the players who are on the pitch.’

A win at the Stadio Olimpico is something that the Frenchman is confident that we’ll get, although his own future at the Etihad isn’t something that he’s so sure about it would appear with him fearful of keeping a regular place in the side.

Should this become the case he, despite signing a new long-term contract recently, would accept a move away if he wasn’t part of the first-team plans on a regular basis, adding: ‘I do not know if I will leave the club. If they come to me and they tell me to pack my bags, I will leave.’
