Joe Hart will stop at nothing to convince Pep Guardiola he’s good with his feet

Ederson who?

Not only that, his Burnley team-mates bizarrely saw him as their main source of creativity.

His entertaining cameo disappointingly amounted to nothing, but seeing Hart collecting one-twos and marauding into the Newcastle half was undoubtedly the highlight of a turgid affair.
