Manchester City's Ederson a serious doubt for Liverpool clash

Ederson is a serious doubt for Manchester City's crucial Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday, according to Pep Guardiola.

The Brazilian goalkeeper was forced off with a thigh injury at half-time of the 1-1 draw with Atalanta and was replaced with Claudio Bravo, who was later sent off.

Defender Kyle Walker ended the night in goal.

"I don't know right now," said Guardiola when asked whether Ederson will be available at Anfield. "It's a muscular problem. It's not big but he didn't feel comfortable and that's why we decided to make a substitution but honestly right now I don't know."

Ederson will have a scan on Thursday to determine the seriousness of the problem but speaking about David Silva's injury on Saturday, Guardiola suggested any muscle injury requires at least 10 days of treatment.

Bravo will be suspended for the next Champions League game against Shakhtar Donetsk, but will be available to line up at Anfield if required.
