Man City will get better, insists Hart
Saturday 29 September 2012
Joe Hart has vowed Manchester City will improve on their sluggish start to the season, the Daily Mirror has reported, as the England international targets a second Premier League title and an impact in the Champions League as well.
The Mirror points out that when the Community Shield is taken into account, City have conceded 16 goals in eight games so far this season and are without a win in their last four matches, which the newspaper claims is the club’s worst run of form under Roberto Mancini.
Hart however has refused to panic over either the team’s leaky defence or streak of games without a win. He said: “Sometimes goals go in against you. That’s football isn’t it? Things have been falling to people, like in the 1-1 draw against Arsenal. Joleon [Lescott] headed it away and [Laurent Koscielny] smashed it in. That’s the way it is. It could have hit the bar and we would have kept a clean sheet.”
City have won only twice this season, at home to Southampton and Queens Park Rangers, and were knocked out of the Capital One Cup at the Etihad Stadium by Aston Villa in midweek.
On Saturday City travel to face Fulham at Craven Cottage, where not only have Martin Jol’s side not dropped a point so far this season, but they have not so much as conceded a goal either.
