Soccer – Hart makes no excuses for City

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has admitted his side have let themselves down at times this season, but is confident that they can put things right next term.

The Citizens, who are 1/20 with Bet365 to finish in the Premier League top four, have lost three of their last five league games to all but end their hopes of retaining their title, with Hart admitting that they have no-one to blame but themselves.
He told reporters: “We are not in the place where we wanted to be – we wanted to be really challenging for the title like we’ve done in previous years. We’ve got to be honest.
“We’ve let ourselves down at key moments. This season a lot of games we’ve played well, but teams have tended to raise their game against us. It’s just how it is.
“It’s just a difficult league to win. I don’t think the champions label makes it any more difficult or any easier.
“If we could blame that, it would be the easy way out. We just haven’t performed in certain moments.”
