Man City keeper Hart plays down stunning performance

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart shrugged off his heroics in yesterday's 0-0 draw at Tottenham.

Hart pulled off world-class saves from Jermain Defoe, Tom Huddlestone and Benoit Assou-Ekotto in the first half as City survived an onslaught.

He told Sky Sports 1: "It was just an enjoyable day, I love playing football.

"It was just another game I was looking forward to."

Of whether he believes he is City's number one goalkeeper, Hart added: "No. Shay Given is the other goalkeeper and I'm sure he'll get chances. We'll be pushing each other, he's a great goalkeeper."

While City struggled before half-time, they improved in the second 45 minutes with Shaun Wright-Phillips having the best of his side's chances.

Hart said: "We needed to get a result today as a big team. There's been so much speculation about us.

"We had to dig in in the first half.

"But we had a few chances and maybe we could have taken them."
