​Man City shot-stopper Ederson not changing habits despite Mane collison

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has revealed that he will not be changing his habits following his sickening collision with Liverpool star Sadio Mane earlier in the season which left him needing eight stitches to a facial wound.

The Brazilian, who has so far managed to keep several clean sheets in the Premier League from nine games, said: "It's the way I play,if I have to put my hand, my head or my foot there to help the team, that's what I'm going to do."It's part of the game, those situations in the box, and I've always played the same way.

"I have no fear of anything. I knew how physical the game is here, how strong and all the tackles. So I was already ready for that and wasn't really surprised.

"I don't think I deserve all the credit because all of my teammates deserves the credit.

"We're defending really well, we're working really well on the right path and we must keep working in the same way."
