Joe Hart: Conceded a soft goal against Scotland

The City shot-stopper was criticised following his below-par performance during England's narrow victory over Scotland in the mid-week friendly at Wembley.

The 26-year-old was at fault for Scotland's first goal although England manager Roy Hodgson has already thrown his support behind his first-choice keeper.

And City boss Pellegrini said: "I haven't spoken with him but Joe has to demonstrate why he is the best goalkeeper in England every week he plays.

"He is a very important goalkeeper and I have a lot of trust in him.

"Everyone can make an error in one match but personally I have a lot of trust in Joe Hart.

"I don't have any problems with his performance and I am sure he will again demonstrate why he is the number one in England."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
