Guardiola expects Ederson & Jesus to play for Man City against Leicester amid Brazil ban request

 

Pep Guardiola is expecting to be able to play Ederson and Gabriel Jesus in Saturday's Premier League clash with Leicester City although he says the situation over their availability remains unclear.

City were among five Premier League clubs that stopped their players travelling to red-list countries in South America, but the Brazilian FA has since responded by imposing a restriction on playing five days after the international window.

Back-up keeper Zack Steffen, meanwhile, is ruled out after testing positive for COVID-19 meaning Guardiola could be forced to field third-choice Scott Carson, who has played just one Premier League in the last 11 years.
