LOAN WATCH: Blunder from Man City keeper Hart leads to Torino loss

Joe Hart had a debut to forget for Italian club Torino on Sunday.

The English goalkeeper, who is on loan with the Turin side from Manchester City, gifted Atalanta an equaliser just minutes after his side went ahead in the eventual 2-1 loss in Bergamo.

Iago Falque scored first for Il Toro on 54 minutes before Hart made a blunder when failing to punch clear a corner which fell for Andrea Masiello to equalise for the home side.

Hart was then beaten from the penalty spot by Franck Kessie in the 82nd minute as his Torino debut went completely against plan.

While Hart's overall performance was strong enough, his glaring error - much in the same vein as Claudio Bravo's in City's derby win over Manchester United - will be the talk of the town.
