During City’s weekend win over West Ham, City goalkeeper Ederson, had a very good game, making a number of top saves to deny the Hammers, including a top save to keep Zouma’s header off the net.

City would go on to win the tie, and loads of praises have been flying for the Brazilian goalkeeper.

City boss Pep Guardiola has highlighted that Ederson is the reason City don’t concede much goals.

Guardiola said: “He’s mature and he’s getting even better.

“We are a team that doesn’t concede too much and I have the feeling that when the opponents arrive he is there.

“The first save in the one-on-one against [Michail] Antonio, the moments he makes the last touch a little bit longer he was there.

“Especially the corner, with [James] Ward-Prowse he is an incredible threat, and Zouma with the tall incredible headers but he made a good save and at that moment it was 1-1.

“We had 16/17 shots in the first half against West Ham which is quite impressive, but these details make the difference and Ederson was there again.

“I have a lot of memories in this competition – when Ederson saves and the opposition makes saves.

“There are many, many things but of course Eddie was a key point, a really key point.”
