Manchester City are still to decide whether to appeal against forward Samir Nasri's sending-off at Norwich on Saturday.

Nasri faces the prospect of a three-match ban after being shown a straight red card for violent conduct for an alleged headbutt on Canaries defender Sebastien Bassong. The Barclays Premier League champions have until Monday afternoon to decide whether to appeal or accept an automatic three-match ban.

Due to the holiday season, an appeal would free Nasri up to play in the New Year's Day game against Stoke at the Etihad Stadium as a hearing would not be held until Wednesday. Manager Roberto Mancini said: "We will decide this morning. We talked yesterday and today we decide."
