Manchester City star names his best Premier League XI

Manchester City star Joe Hart has selected his best Premier League starting XI - but omitted his City teammates in the interest of fairness.

The England international might raise a few eyebrows with his first-choice strike-force - Manchester United pairing Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney get the nod.

In midfield, Santi Cazorla, Juan Mata, Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon are Hart's choices, with Glen Johnson, Phil Jagielka, Ryan Shawcross and Ashley Cole across the backline.

As for his number 1, the Premier League shot-stopper could not decide between Petr Cech, Simon Mignolet and Asmir Begovic.

The England star picked four of his teammates from Roy Hodgson's squad. But not a single Manchester City player, although Hart admitted this was only because it wouldn't be fair to choose between his own teammates.

The report, in the Daily Mail, also reveals Hart's admiration for a number of young goalkeepers coming through in the Premier League.

The likes of Begovic and Mignolet drew praise from the Manchester City, as did a few other of his close rivals in the Premier League, Scottish Premier League and Football League.

"There's Tim Krul, there's the Chelsea keeper Thibaud Courtois on loan at Atletico Madrid, there's Fraser Forster, there's Jack Butland, John Ruddy, I could go on and on," said Hart.

The City keeper kept a clean sheet on Sunday as Roberto Mancini's side maintained the seven point gap between them and league leaders Manchester United, winning 2-0 against Arsenal.
