‘He’s always had that ability,’ Hart told BBC Sport.
‘I struggle to find a fault with Harry. He is absolutely brilliant. Every single pass, every single shot, every single decision.
‘He is such a team player. His leadership is doing it, which is often more important than being vocal.
‘We have seen how selfless he is. He is a special player and I love being in the same team as him.’

Jose Mourinho signed the goalkeeper after he was released by Burnley in the summer and he has cemented his place as a solid back-up option for first choice Hugo Lloris.
All of Hart’s appearances in a Tottenham shirt have come in the Europa League.
He kept his first clean sheet in a 3-0 victory over LASK in the opening group game last week with his other two games coming in the qualifying stages.
