‘Doesn’t look good’ – Ederson Injury Sparks Concern for Guardiola and Man City

2 minutes read

Pep Guardiola says Ederson’s injury ‘doesn’t look good’ as Manchester City gears up for their final four Premier League matches of the season.

Ederson sustained a shoulder injury following a collision with Forest’s Willy-Arnaud Boly early in the game. Despite the discomfort, he continued to play until half-time, when Guardiola substituted him with Stefan Ortega. Ederson was later seen leaving the pitch with his arm in a sling.

While goals from Josko Gvardiol and Erling Haaland secured a victory for the champions against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, Ederson’s injury at such a crucial point in the title race overshadowed the triumph.

Considering the severity of Ederson’s shoulder injury, Stefan Ortega, who previously filled in during Ederson’s absence due to a thigh problem, may be called upon for the remaining matches of the season.

Reflecting on the victory, which marked his 300th Premier League game, Pep Guardiola offered a worrying prognosis on his first-choice goalkeeper’s condition post-match.

Guardiola said: “It was more than hard. Such a difficult game, but we knew that. It’s always difficult to come here. We suffered a lot but, in the end, we’ll take it.

“The pressure is about how you play. iIf you play well and control the game, then people say you don’t feel the pressure. If you play badly, people say you feel the pressure.

“We were lucky today that the pitch was so dry, because that was the reason they missed the chances they did. We were lucky the pitch was in this condition.”

Guardiola will want Ederson fit for his side’s remaining four games of the campaign as they compete for an unprecedented fourth straight Premier League title.
