‘We can turn up anywhere and win’: Joe Hart positive Manchester City can put poor record straight against Arsenal

By Kim Richards

Hero goalkeeper Joe Hart believes Manchester City have nothing to fear ahead of their trip to face Arsenal this Sunday.

The Premier League champions hold a less-than-stellar record against the Gunners with their last victory coming in 2007.

The England keeper insists however that City, who have not beaten then Londoners in the league for 37 years, will not go into the game fearing history – and hope to clinch all three points.

“Apparently we haven’t scored [at the Emirates] since 2007 which is never great when you are trying to win,” Hart told TalkSport.

“We feel strongly we can turn up anywhere and win but it’s just not been the case unfortunately when we’ve been to the Emirates.

“But it’s not one of those places where you walk through the doors and you’re like ‘oh no we’re here again, we’re going to lose’.

“It’s got a great pitch, a great atmosphere and it feels like you can go there and express yourself and hopefully that will be the case on Sunday.”

The Blues trail Premier League leaders and main rivals Manchester United by seven points, and Hart added that he realises the Champions haven’t matched their performances last season.

“It’s been frustrating for us because we know what we’re capable of and unfortunately sometimes we’ve had games where a couple of us haven’t played great.,” he added.

“Last year two or three of us would play brilliantly and that would be enough to win the game and others we won comfortably.

“It’s difficult but we’ve been fighting through it and we’re feeling positive.”
