Joe Hart remains on Man City bench

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart was once again named on the bench for his side`s Premier League game at home to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

The England international lost his place in City`s starting line-up following a blunder in a 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on October 27 and has now been named among the substitutes for five consecutive club games.

He played for England in their 2-0 friendly loss to Germany last Tuesday but City manager Manuel Pellegrini once again elected to use Romanian Costel Pantilimon for the visit of Spurs.
