Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has shrugged off his Champions League heroics against Borussia Dortmund.

Hart was modest when asked to reflect on his own performance, which had many including England team-mate Wayne Rooney hailing him as the world's best goalkeeper.

The 25-year-old said: "It's nice to make saves, it is not something I have to do a great deal at City but when required I try to step in and I was required a few times."

Hart is yet to keep a clean sheet for City this season and the defence, a considerable strength last season, has become a concern.

Hart said: "We were pretty open but it allows us to play forward.

"Hopefully we can shore it up again and be the force that we are."
