Manchester City have decided not to appeal against Samir Nasri's controversial sending-off at Norwich at the weekend.

The France forward 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.
