Kingston upon Hull: Samir Nasri insists Manchester City will get their season back on track at Hull on Saturday after crashing out of the FA Cup and the Champions League in the space of four days. Manuel Pellegrini's side is nine points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea going into the weekend, although they have three games in hand and a superior goal difference.
City's European adventure concluded with a 4-1 aggregate defeat against Barcelona on Wednesday, a widely expected result following their 2-0 defeat in the first leg, but they were also shocked by a 2-1 home defeat in the FA Cup quarter-finals against Championship side Wigan last weekend.
Such has been City's involvement in the cups that only seven of their 17 matches since the turn of the year have been in the Premier League. The 1-0 win over Stoke on February 22 was their only league match in their last six games but after a frustrating week, the League Cup winners now have only one thing left to concentrate on as they look for a second Premier League title in three years.
