Samir Nasri mocked Liverpool on Twitter, now it's come back to bite him

Samir Nasri

Manchester City ace took delight in Liverpool dropping points at Crystal Palace last season.

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri will not be so smug about Crystal Palace's latest result.

Last season the Frenchman took to Twitter to revel in Palace's fightback against Liverpool to draw 3-3, a dagger blow to the Reds title hopes.

City capitalised on this by going on to win the 2013/14 Premier League, but their hopes of reclaiming the title appear to be over.

Crystal Palace did the damage last night, beating City 2-1 to effectively kill off their chances. 

Nasri was a 77th minute substitute in City's loss at Selhurst Park, and is uncertain to start at the weekend in the derby against Manchester United.

The 27-year-old could yet receive even more bad news, and Liverpool could be the ones to inflict it.

City are in fourth position in the Premier League now, looking over their shoulders at the Reds. City were on the right end of a late turnaround in fortunes last season, and if their inconsistent form continues, and Liverpool can get back on track - they could miss out on Champions League qualification.
