Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini had revealed that England international goalkeeper will start in City’s final Champions League fixture against current European champions Bayern Munich.
Hart was dropped after a series of high-profile errors and was replaced in the starting line-up by Costel Pantilimon but the Chilean coach has said that the England keeper will be back to face Bayern.
"Joe Hart will play against Bayern Munich, sure," the Chilean, whose side are already guaranteed progression to the knockout stages, told reporters.
"Of course, if you ask me at this moment, the game against Arsenal next weekend is more important than the game against Bayern Munich,” he added.
"From the moment we qualified for the next round, the Premier League became more important than Champions League but that does not mean there is a possibility that the players who play against Bayern Munich will not play against Arsenal."
