Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart believes that the club are progressing under new manager Manuel Pellegrini.

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has admitted that he and his teammates are slowly clicking into gear under new boss Manuel Pellegrini.

The Chilean started life as City manager with two defeats in South Africa, but his side won the Asia Trophy by defeating Sunderland in the final and also recorded a victory over AC Milan.

Hart told the Manchester Evening News: "It's going well. We know where we stand and how he wants us to play. It worked for the first half an hour against Milan but then it all fell a part a bit.

"We're going in the right direction and it feels good. In terms of how I feel about him (Pellegrini), he seems very direct in what he wants and what he needs and that's a lot easier to deal with as a player.

"There's different staff and different players. I think it should work out. We've got some good players here and hopefully we'll do some good things this season."

City start their Premier League campaign against Newcastle United on August 19.
