Manchester City teammates were delighted for Jack Rodwell after his performance in victory over Chelsea.

Joe Hart applauded Rodwell's performance.

He said: "I am really happy for Jack because he's had a hard time with injuries.

"But when you get him fit, you just know you are going to get good ­performances from him. Whatever he needs this club will give it to him - be it fans or players, we're there for him.

"You just know when you have got quality and that's the case with Jack.

''Hopefully he'll now get a little run of games and we will see what he is about."
