Joe Hart claims Manchester City's best is yet to come as they bid to fight off Paris Saint-Germain in their battle for a Champions League semi-final spot.

The two sides have it all to play for in the second leg of their last-eight tie at the Etihad Stadium next week after a frantic 2-2 draw at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday.

Fernandinho's 72nd-minute equaliser gave City the advantage of a second away goal but after a breathless first clash littered by errors from both sides, goalkeeper Hart knows improvement is necessary.

The England number one, who saved an early penalty from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, said: "There is definitely an opportunity there but 2-2 is no foregone conclusion. It is going to be another open game - two very positive teams playing against each other.

"I think both of us are going to want to cut out a few mistakes and we can move on from there.

"They are a good team, they are dangerous, but we are always going to believe we are a good team. We have a lot of good players and there is lot more to come from us."

Hart's spot-kick stop was his sixth from the last 11 he has faced for club and country and offered early justification for the decision to play him after rushing back from a calf injury.

City have surprisingly slipped out of the Premier League title race having been favourites two months ago as they face West Brom at home tomorrow.
