Premier League - City opt against Nasri red card appeal

Manchester City will not appeal against Samir Nasri's sending-off at Norwich on Saturday.

The France midfielder was dismissed in the first half of the champions' 4-3 Premier League win at Carrow Road for an alleged headbutt at Sebastien Bassong.

Manager Roberto Mancini indicated after the game on Saturday that an appeal would be lodged but, after further thought, the club have now announced there will not be a challenge.
