Hart: We deserved the win

18 October 2015, 18:57

London - Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart admitted his "disjointed" team did not play well against Borussia Monchengladbach but insisted they deserved their 2-1 victory over the Bundesliga side in Wednesday's Champions League match.

The Sky Blues found themselves a goal down after a 54th minute strike from Lars Stindl but clawed their way back into the game when Nicolas Otamendi's deflected shot found the back of the net.

City left it late as striker Sergio Aguero scored a 90th minute penalty to give the English side their first Champions League win of the season.

Hart played a crucial role to help City bounce back from their defeat by Juventus last month, saving a 20th minute penalty from Raffael and producing several brilliant stops to frustrate Gladbach in the Group D contest.

"We didn't play well... We're not really happy with the performance but winning puts us in a good position," Hart told the club's website.

"We were really disjointed, like in the past couple of Premier League games, we had a good half and a bad half.

"I think we deserved to win. We profited when they were a little bit tired at the end. They made a few mistakes and we kept our quality," the 28-year-old added.

Hart also praised Aguero, who was the top goal-scorer in the Premier League last season, saying that the Argentine can score almost at will.

"We left it late but Kun's a cool guy and no matter whether he's in form or not, he will score," the England international said.
