Manchester City fans react to Joe Hart's performance against Bayern Munich on Twitter

Hart starred for City last night despite their defeat to Bayern Munich

Manchester City lost their opening Champions League game of the season by losing 1-0 to Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena.

After keeping the Bundesliga champions at bay until the closing stages of the game, a Jerome Boateng strike stole all three points for the home side.

City face Roma next in the Champions League - who beat CSKA Moscow 5-1 in the Olympic Stadium, sending out a message that they mean business as well.

Hart said City deserved a point for their efforts in Munich, but it was he who the Premier League champions had to thank for keeping them at bay for most of the game with a string of fine saves.

Some will dispute Hart's comments that City deserved to come away from Germany with a point but given his performance, he was perhaps undeservedly on the losing side.

The performance was certainly a message to Manuel Pellegrini, who may have been considering dropping the goalkeeper like he did last season. Hart was photographed seemingly in tears at the end of the game.
