The Red Devils are currently two points behind the league leaders, but have played one game more, while Andre Villas-Boas' men are 10 points behind, in fifth place in the standings.
City travel to London to play Chelsea tonight, with the Blues having just qualified for the knockout round of the Champions League as group winners, in contrast to both Manchester clubs, who bowed out of the competition.
But Nasri believes that City's arch-rivals pose more of a threat on the domestic circuit. "Man United are still the threat to us," said the Frenchman, according to The Sunday Mirror. "I say that because they have more experience than any other team.
It will be difficult when we play Chelsea, of course, but we knew it would also be difficult going to places like Spurs, Man United and Liverpool -- and we had great results against those teams. "So I don't know what we have to fear about Chelsea."
