Joe Hart was to blame for gifting Chelsea a 90th minute winner that sealed their 2-1 victory over the Manchester City. 

Spanish striker Fernando Torres capitalised on some dreadful defending from the Citizens; as Matija Nastasic's attempted header to his goalkeeper resulted in Torres chasing a loose ball, only to tuck it away for his first league goal of the season.

England's number one Joe Hart failed to communicate with his defender, as the Serbian assumed Hart was still in his goal and consequently looped an inviting headed ball over the 'keeper for Torres to win the game for Chelsea.

Lapses in communication between goalkeeper and defender often provokes debate as to who takes blame for the mess, although Sky Sports pundits Niall Quinn and Graham Souness seemed quite certain. "90% Hart, 10% Nastasic", said Niall Quinn, with his fellow colleague Graham Souness opting to put the blame entirely on Hart, "100% Hart for me".

Andre Schurrle gave Chelsea the lead on 33 minutes, after Fernando Torres out-paced City's Gael Clichy to present Schurrle with an easy tap-in. City started positively in the second half and equalised from Sergio Aguero's left-footed effort, his 10th goal of the season. But it was Chelsea that had the last word when Nastasic's attempted back pass presented Torres with the winner on 90 minutes.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini wasn't too quick to put the blame on anyone at this stage, stating, " I don't think it is the moment to say who should take the ball".

Either way, Chelsea wont care, they return to 2nd place in the Premier League, just two points behind leaders Arsenal. Manchester City's 3rd defeat of the season sees them in 7th place- six points adrift of top spot.
