Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart admits expectations are growing at Eastlands since the arrival of manager Sven Goran Eriksson.

Hart, now Eriksson's outright No1, told City's website: "It's gone from excitement to expectancy here, it's great to think that we could have beaten Liverpool. We really should have beaten Blackburn Rovers at home and Villa away, it's a great feeling and it must be so much better for the fans to be looking forward than to be looking back."
