Joe Hart kept his 100th Premier League clean sheet on Sunday in the Manchester Derby at Old Trafford. After the match Hart reflected on the match.

"We came here looking to take three points but respect to Man United who were set up well and they caused us a few problems further up the field, but we defended well and limited them to two half-chances.

"We don't want praise - we just want points. We wanted all three today but we took one and it was what was required to put us back on top of the table. Now we just need to kick on again."

On Nicolas Otamendi:

"Nico has come in and adapted very quickly which is something we expected, but respect to him because it's not an easy league to come into.

"He had a tussle with Rooney all afternoon and Martial out on the wing. It was a big occasion for him but he slipped in alongside Vincent and played really well - we're blessed to have so many good centre-halves at this club and Nico is definitely one of them."

On a 100 clean sheets:

"Oh, nice! I didn’t know that. It’s a nice stat to have but I’ve no intention of finishing so if I’m asked in ten years’ time, I might be a bit more interested."

Hart is likely to rest midweek against Crystal Palace in the League Cup given Manager Manuel Pellegrini's keeper rotation policies.
