Roberto Mancini insists he has not had a bust up with Mario Balotelli.

The Manchester City manager has a tempestuous relationship with the fiery Italy forward.

The City manager has often spoken out about Balotelli's behaviour and general lifestyle, at one point declaring the former Inter Milan man had no future at the Etihad Stadium.

When Balotelli was left out of Mancini's squad altogether for the midweek Champions League tie with Real Madrid, it suggested another major row.

And whilst Mancini could hardly claim Balotelli was overjoyed at missing such a high-profile game, the Italian insisted there was no deep-rooted issue.

"I don't have any problem with him," said Mancini.

"There has been no argument. Absolutely not. This story is totally false. Mario went to the stand because we decided to play only with (Carlos) Tevez and I can't put three strikers on the bench. Mario is a player like the other players. He can go on the bench or in the stand."

Balotelli is expected to be involved on Sunday, when City host in-form Arsenal, especially as former Gunner Samir Nasri is unlikely to be fit after limping out of the Madrid defeat with a hamstring injury.

"I don't think (Nasri) will be ready for Sunday," said Mancini.
