Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says Joe Hart has his full backing.

The England goalkeeper was blamed for James Morrison's goal for Scotland this week.

"I haven't spoken with him, maybe tomorrow, but I think Joe Hart has to demonstrate why he is the best goalkeeper in England every week he plays," said Pellegrini.

"He is a very important goalkeeper, I have a lot of trust in him. Everyone can make an error but I have a lot of trust in him and I am sure he will again this year show why is the No 1 in England."
