Pep Guardiola provides Ederson injury update

Ahead of the Newcastle game, Manchester City have been dealt a big blow on the injury front.

Ederson came off 11 minutes into the second half after injuring his leg as he fouled Darwin Nunez to give away the penalty from which Alexis Mac Allister scored Liverpool’s equaliser. After referee Michael Oliver pointed to the spot, Ederson spent more than two minutes being treated.

Ten minutes later, the Brazilian went down to the ground, with City readying Stefan Ortega to come on as Ederson walked straight down the tunnel.

After the game, Pep Guardiola admitted he had been left fearing the worst after being updated on Ederson’s condition by the club’s medical staff. He told beIN Sports: “It doesn’t look good.”
