A positive update on the injury suffered by Ederson emerges in a boost for Manchester City

Positive news has emerged on the shoulder injury suffered by Ederson against Nottingham Forest. A shoulder injury saw City’s number one keeper substituted at half-time of his team’s crucial 2-nil win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday. The Brazilian shot stopper suffered a shoulder injury after being on the receiving end of a challenge from Willy Boly during the first half of City’s win at the City Ground.

Fred Caldeira of TNT Sports has reported that tests on the injury suffered by Ederson have shown that there is no injury issue for the Brazilian international. Furthermore, Caldeira also reports that Ederson is expected to return to training over the next couple of days.

The news on Ederson’s condition will come as a boost to Manchester City. Pep Guardiola will be hoping to have his full squad available for City’s remaining 5 matches this season. A full squad fit and available will aid City’s chase for a double this campaign. If City win their final 5 games, they would take home the Premier League and FA Cup this season. Ederson will have a crucial role to play in City’s chase for more silverware this campaign.

It remains to be seen if Ederson will be fit enough to start in goal against Wolves this weekend. The champions host Gary O’Neil’s side at the Etihad Stadium this weekend. It is another must win game for Manchester City this weekend. The champions need to win their four remaining Premier League fixtures to create history this season and claim a fourth consecutive Premier League title.

If Ederson is unable to start, then Stefan Ortega will get another opportunity to impress. The German keeper has impressed again this season when given the opportunity.
