Joe Hart says Manchester City wont be affected by the fact that they haven’t won away at Sundays opponents Arsenal for 37 years in the league.

The two sides meet at The Emirates in the Premier League in Sundays late kick off and much has been made of the Citizens poor away record against the Gunners, talk which their number one stopper has dismissed.

“These records are made to be broken. We feel strongly that we can turn up anywhere and win,” the Evening Standard quoted Hart as telling talkSPORT.

“It has not happened at the Emirates. But it is not a case of us turning up and thinking we are going to lose.

“It is a great pitch, great atmosphere and it feels like you can go and express yourself. Hopefully that will be the case on Sunday.”

City could go into the game 10 points behind Manchester United if their rivals defeat Liverpool in the days earlier game, however Hart is still confident in his sides ability to achieve although is aware that they haven’t managed to hit the heights of their title winning campaign.

“We know what we are capable of but there have been occasions when a couple of us have not played great. Last year, two or three would play brilliantly and that would be enough for us to win the game.

“It has been difficult. We are fighting through it and are still feeling positive.”

City go into Sundays fixture without Yaya Toure who has departed to the African Cup of Nations, while Sergio Aguero also looks set to miss out with a hamstring injury.
