Pep Guardiola says Ederson’s injury ‘doesn’t look good’ after the Manchester City goalkeeper limped off during the draw at Liverpool.

Liverpool and City played out a thrilling 1-1 draw at Anfield on Sunday, a result that means Arsenal remain top of the Premier League, but only one point separates the three title challengers.

John Stones scored the opener for the visitors but Ederson gave away a penalty just minutes after the break by fouling Darwin Nunez as the forward attempted to pounce onto a poor back pass by Nathan Ake.

The keeper guessed the right way but could not stop Alexis Mac Allister’s spot-kick from finding the top left corner.

To make matters worse for City, the foul appeared to injury Ederson who went down a few moments later and eventually he limped off in the 56th minute to be replaced by Stefan Ortega.

Speaking to beIN Sports after the game Guardiola was asked how his star keeper was, to which he simply responded: ‘It doesn’t look good.’

Pressed on the matter in his post-match press conference, the manager simply added: ‘I don’t know right now [how serious it is].

‘Looks a little bit [not good]… but I don’t know the diagnosis.’

Ederson has once again been in brilliant form for the Citizens this season, conceding just 31 goals in 36 games so far, keeping 12 clean sheets.

The 30-year-old was subbed off injured after just eight minutes against Newcastle back in January but was fit again for their next league game.

Thankfully for City, they don’t play in the league again until after the international break when they host title rivals Arsenal on 31 March.

But before the break they do take on Newcastle in an FA Cup quarter-final this Saturday evening.

This incident will no doubt be of serious concern to Brazil who could be without their best two goalkeepers for the March internationals, with Liverpool’s Alisson Becker also on the sidelines with a thigh injury.
