Former England goalkeeper Ray Clemence fears that Joe Hart's confidence will be shattered if he is dropped by Manchester City.

Former England goalkeeper Ray Clemence believes that Joe Hart's confidence could plummet if Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini drops him from the team.

Reports have claimed that the England international will not start in tomorrow's Premier League clash against Norwich City following a number of mistakes in goal.

"What we have to be careful of, and we're terrible for it in this country, is getting on somebody's back and destroying their confidence," Clemence told talkSPORT.

"I've seen it happen to Paul Robinson when that ball bounced over his foot in Croatia, and Scott Carson was never forgiven for the Croatia game at Wembley. It just affects them and some don't recover from it. I don't want to see that happen to Joe."

Costel Pantilimon is expected to take Hart's place in the team.
