Although not much of a surprise, Roberto Mancini has confirmed that there will be no rotation in goal for Thursday's trip to Salzburg:
"It is a difficult decision for me because Shay is a strong goalkeeper like Joe, but at this moment this is my choice.
"We are involved in four competitions and I’m sure Shay will play in Europe at some point but I will continue to play Joe on Thursday."
However, it is far too tricky a trip to heavily rotate - particularly at this stage of the competition with the opportunity the competition presents - so to see Hart rested at this stage would have been a big surprise, even allowing for his error on Saturday and recent workload that included back to back international games.
I have no doubt though that Given will be lining up in goal at The Hawthorns next week however.
