MOST COMMENTED

Manchester City coach Manuel Pellegrini admitted that he could drop Joe Hart in favor of second-string goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon when Everton travels to the Etihad to take on City on Saturday. Hart was at fault on both Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben’s goals during City’s 3-1 loss against Bayern Munich in Group B of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday. He has also been at fault for goals scored by Cardiff’s Frazier Campbell and Aston Villa’s Andreas Weimann in the Premier League.

"I will decide tomorrow [Saturday] if he starts. Joe knows he must improve the way he is playing," Pellegrini said. “Costel Pantilimon is a very good goalkeeper also. He has the right to play. He is working hard and I am absolutely sure, whether it is tomorrow or another game and Pantilimon plays, he will do well."

Pellegrini added that Hart had accepted the blame for Ribery's strike on Wednesday, adding: "Of course, he feels that he didn't do very well but I think he doesn't have any problem. He has the trust of all the team and our trust, so we hope he will recover from what he did last match."
