The England goalkeeper shone for City against the Swans.
Indeed, City snuck a late win over managerless Swansea and could not have done so without the contribution of their goalkeeper.
The 28-year-old was in fine form at the Etihad - and supporters showed their appreciation on Twitter after Manchester City's narrow triumph.

As Opta stats show, Hart made no less than six saves for Manchester City against Swansea on Saturday afternoon. Ironically, England rival Jack Butland was the only man to make more.
But, Butland and Costel Pantilimon aside, no goalkeeper helped their side more - which illustrates exactly how much City relied on the 28-year-old at the Etihad.
Many fans felt City performed poorly - except for their knight in shining armour Hart. Victory was nevertheless ensured, though, and how good will it feel for Manuel Pellegrini to be back at the top of the Premier League table again, even if only temporarily?
Here's how Manchester City supporters reacted on Twitter to Hart's display against the Swans:

Big performances from Yaya and Hart. #mcfc defence needs to make a huge improvement ahead of Emirates or it could be carnage.— Jonathan Smith (@jonnysmiffy) December 12, 2015
We played pretty poorly today, but sometimes you have to win ugly and we did it. Hats off to Hart who pretty much won us the game. #mcfc— Shaun Fleckney (@ShaunFleckney) December 12, 2015
