Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has jumped to the defence of goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Hart is underfire for a poor run of form this season.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "When you are a top player like Joe, you don't have problems with confidence. Sometimes you can have a rough patch. But he knows everyone is behind him at the club.

"The good thing for Joe and the rest of us is that we play tomorrow at 12.45 so we don't need to think too long about what happened on Wednesday."
