Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini believes that Joe Hart will "return to his normal performance" after being dropped for today's triumph over Norwich City.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has said that resting Joe Hart will help the England international rediscover his form.

The 26-year-old was relegated to the substitutes' bench for today's 7-0 triumph over Norwich City, with Costel Pantilimon taking his place between the sticks.

"My duty is to see every week who is the best player to play," Pellegrini told the club's official website.

"Joe needed a rest, it will be useful for him. He's played every match for two years. Every player can have a bad moment.

"I only know that Joe must work very hard and he will have all of the support of me and the goalkeeper coach and the team. He is England's goalkeeper and I think he will be back. I am sure he will return to his normal performance."

The win has lifted Manchester City up to fourth place in the Premier League table.
