Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart admits that he is trying to replicate Real Madrid's Iker Casillas style to improve his own form.

Joe Hart has revealed that he studies Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas's performances in order to improve his own game.

The Manchester City goalkeeper has been in good form this season and was named in the PFA team of the year this week but admits that Casillas is setting the benchmark.

Hart told his club's official website: "I'm trying to work out exactly how Casillas manages to react to what the forwad does instead of trying to force the striker into a decision.

"It's better doing it his way, using your reflexes rather than trying to anticipate what is going to happen.

"More and more I'm coming across different strikers or styles of play that require just what Casillas has - quick decision-making and quick reflexes."

Manchester City are currently second in the Premier League.
