Joe Hart: 'Respect to Manchester United following derby draw'

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart admits that his side had to show some respect to Manchester United following Louis van Gaal's side's showing at Old Trafford.

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has admitted that his side had to show Manchester United respect following their rivals' performance at Old Trafford.

Louis van Gaal's United side dominated most of the Premier League contest, and they were unlucky not to find a winner when Jesse Lingard's shot hit the crossbar.

"It's a performance that I'm glad we have in the locker but I'd prefer it if we didn't have to use it," said Hart, according to BBC Sport.

"We came wanting three points but respect to Manchester United, we had to defend well and limited them to two half chances.

"We don't want praise, we want points. We are back on top of the league now and we can hopefully kick on."

City's away draw has moved Manuel Pellegrini's men back to the top of the league standings.
