Manuel Pellegrini: Joe Hart is Manchester City number one

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says Joe Hart remains his first-choice goalkeeper - but insits no player is guaranteed a place.

Hart was criticised for his display in City's 3-2 defeat away at newly promoted Cardiff and Pellegrini says the England number one knows he has to improve.

City face Hull City, another side who have come up from the Championship, at Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
