Manchester City centre back Matija Nastasic might have edged England international Joleon Lescott out of Roberto Mancini's starting line up but he admits he still has a lot to learn.

Nastasic has quietly forged a solid defensive partnership with Vincent Kompany, even though Lescott has been available for selection after returning from injury. The composed teenager has been in good form and has become a key part of a City defence that has kept five clean sheets in their last six league games.

However, the Serbian believes he is still learning alongside one of the best defenders in the business in the form of Kompany, and said: "It's going very well. I'm very happy. The road is the right one and I think I'm going the right way."
