Joe Hart finally returns to the Manchester City side for their Premier League clash with Fulham.

England’s no.1 has been out of favour with the Citizens in recent weeks, following an error-strewn start to the season.

The 26-year-old has not featured in the Premier League since City’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at the end of October, where Hart was held accountable for Fernando Torres’ last-gasp winning goal.

He has since played in just two Champions League matches and one Capital One Cup clash, with understudy Costel Pantilimon deputising in Hart’s absence.
