The Premier League champions didn’t get their Champions League campaign off to the best of starts, losing to a last gasp Jerome Boeteng goal in a 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on matchday one.

Despite this disappointment, Hart insists his side are ready to re-ignite their Champions League campaign by beating the formidable Italian club.

“It’s obviously a big game for us,” Hart told the club’s official website. “It was disappointing to start with the loss out in Munich but it’s the Champions League and luckily it’s not knockout straight away.

“We need to start our home Champions League campaign with a win but we know Roma will be tough. We’re more than up for this. We know how well Roma have been playing but we are ready.”

Rudi Garcia’s side have started the season perfectly, winning all five of their Serie A games and only conceding 1 goals.

One piece of good news for City fans ahead of the clash is that Stevan Jovetic will be fit to take part in the game although influential midfielder Fernando has been ruled out.

“We continue injured with Fernando,” said City coach Manuel Pellegrini. “Stevan Jovetic is in the squad list – he is ready for tomorrow.

“Samir Nasri had surgery yesterday, he will be out for around one month. All the other players are fit.”
