Hart and mind games don't mix

Fighting talk today from Joe Hart - but don't worry, there were no fireworks about Mario finishing off the last of the trifle at the goalkeeper's birthday party.
England's finest remains dedicated to celebrating a title win at the end of the season despite the points gap that might confront the Blues by the time they arrive at Molineux.
Whatever Roberto says, Joe won't accept that hope is gone, and is quoted on espn.com and elsewhere: "There is no point in us turning up on Sunday if the title race is over. We've still got to believe, we've still got to fight for every single point available.
"I know three of them definitely can be overturned - that is in our hands. Other than that, we've got to rely on other teams. We can only battle away and try and win every game and hope United slip up."
He's also delighted to have golf ace and Carrow Road hat-trick hero Carlos Tevez back in the swing up front following the Argentine ace's six-month absence from the club.
His take on Tevez? "We have been a bit dry on goals recently, so that fresh Carlos input has been awesome," Hart told Sky Sports News.
"You can say what you want about Carlos Tevez, but when he plays, he plays to win and he plays for his team-mates.
"There are far more important things in our lives than what went on and what didn't go on. We have that goal of trying to win the league and Carlos has bought into that.
He has not come in and tried to make any big statements. We have just all moved on
With another of his old clubs, Everton, due at Old Trafford, he tells sportinglife.com: "No disrespect to Everton and Wolves but we'd both like to think that we could win those games. So that means there is more emphasis on the derby.
"No matter what, we're going to have to win that game if we want to win the league and take control of our own destiny."
