Hart, 26, played his first EPL game in nearly two months in the 4-2 win at Fulham on Dec. 21 and he made several outstanding saves on Thursday when City beat Liverpool 2-1. Hart was replaced by Romanian Costel Pantilimon early in November, one week after an error that allowed Fernando Torres to score Chelsea's winner in a 2-1 Man City loss.
