James Milner has hailed the Hart of Joe and his incredible performance against Barcelona in midweek.

With Hart’s performance seeing ten saves it means his individual performance was the best by a goalkeeper in the Champions League on Wednesday evening as the last time a stopper came out with that record was Iker Casillas back in November 2013, but when you consider five of the ten came from inside the penalty box including one on ones saves against Messi, Neymar and Suarez it speaks volumes for his individual effort.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, Milner wasn’t going to let that pass without comment and he said of his England colleague (both receiving call ups this international break) and the unfortunately missed penalty.

‘You`ve got to keep going but it was a good chance for us. There was 15 minutes left and to get that goal would have helped but that`s football, sometimes they go in sometimes they don`t. Harty, saved one in the first leg and that could have been a game changer, these ties are decided on these moments and unfortunately it didn`t happen for us.’

Speaking more specifically about Hart, he added.

‘There`s not too many words you can say – incredible really. He`s shown what a great keeper he is and it`s not the first time he`s done that for us in Europe. He gave us that chance to to still be in it and he deserves all the credit and words people will say about him.’

Hart himself was pretty grounded about his performance, joking it was one of his busier games but that’s what he’s there for.

‘I`m in there to make saves, they hit me a lot tonight, I just tried to make myself big, but we move on. It`s West Brom next, and a big shout to the fans who came here again up in the clouds we really appreciate them coming and we know we`re going to turn up on Saturday afternoon and will be ready to go again.’
