Poor Joe Hart. The Manchester City goalkeeper had a day not to remember today when West Ham United striker Andy Carroll took a shot, only for the ball to embarrassingly go under Joe Hart’s legs and into the back of the net.
Carroll brilliantly chested the ball down to create space and then unleashed a shot right at Joe Hart, but the ball crept between his legs.
To be fair to Hart, the goalkeeper was suffering from an injury. According to former Manchester City assistant coach Mark Bowen, “I will give Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart the benefit of the doubt as he has been struggling with a groin injury and he was grimacing on the way down.”
Opta quickly followed up with this statistic:
“Joe Hart has now made five errors leading directly to a goal in the Premier League this season, four more than in 2011-12. Fumble.”
Nevertheless, Manchester City went on to win the match 2-1 against the Hammers.
