Aston Villa keeper Heaton praises Ederson passing

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson won praise for his passing ability after their 3-0 defeat of Aston Villa.

Ederson was the architect of Raheem Sterling's opener 21 seconds after half-time. Villa were powerless to stop him finding Gabriel Jesus before Sterling latched on and swept in.

"It's a pass, not a long ball," said Tom Heaton, Ederson's opposite number.

"You should never force it playing out from the back. Ederson suits the way they play and still has that long threat. It makes it difficult to stay compact if they can go over the top."
