Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has told talkSPORT that he and his team-mates aren’t afraid of facing Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday.
But Hart insists the Premier League champions aren’t affected by history and he is confident City can end their woeful run and take three points back to the Etihad Stadium.
He told Hawksbee and Jacobs: “Apparently we haven’t scored [at the Emirates] since 2007 which is never great when you’re trying to win.
“We feel strongly we can turn up anywhere and win but it’s just not been the case unfortunately when we’ve been to the Emirates but it’s not one of those [places] where you walk through the doors and you’re like, ‘oh no, we’re here again. We’re going to lose’.
“It’s got a great pitch, a great atmosphere and it feels like you can go there and express yourself and hopefully that will be the case on Sunday.”
And Hart added that, although City haven’t been at their best so far season as they look to retain the Premier League title, he and his team-mates are battling on as they look to topple their rivals Man United, who currently lead the table.
He said: “It’s been frustrating for us because we know what we’re capable of and unfortunately sometimes we’ve had games where a couple of us haven’t played great when last year two or three would play brilliantly and that would be enough to win the game and other games we won comfortably.
“It’s difficult but we’ve been fighting through it and we’re feeling positive.”
