Carra wrote in the Daily Mail: "It has been good to see Joe Hart remind people over Christmas what a top goalkeeper he is. He was man of the match when Manchester City beat Liverpool, got a black eye for his efforts against Crystal Palace and showed he has benefited from being taken out of the firing line by Manuel Pellegrini.
"It is often said quality keepers are worth 10-12 points during a season and Hart has made a difference to City over the festive period. His saves against Liverpool and Palace turned two draws into wins.
"I admire Pellegrini for being so bold. Hart is a far better keeper than Costel Pantilimon and was always going to get his place back but many other managers might have ducked the issue."
