Injury caused Joe Hart's blunder, says Platt

City's victory featured goals from Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure, although their man of the match was, arguably, midfielder Samir Nasri, who has endured a poor season and was recently criticised by manager Mancini.

Manchester: David Platt, the Manchester City assistant coach, says that an injury was responsible for the poor goal conceded by goalkeeper Joe Hart in his side's 2-1 victory over West Ham United.

Hart's season has been punctuated by high-profile errors, the latest coming in injury time on Saturday when he allowed a well-hit shot from West Ham forward Andy Carroll to pass through his hands and legs on its way into the net.

While the late goal had no bearing on the outcome of the game, it was an embarrassing moment for Hart, who had appeared shaken moments before after suffering a back spasm while kicking the ball.
