Man City boss Guardiola hopeful over Ederson fitness

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson could play in his side's key Premier League clash against Liverpool.

The Citizens face off against the Reds in a game that could decide the fate of the Premier League title.

City trail by six points at the top of the table, and they know that getting a positive result at Anfield on Sunday is vital.

Ederson came off in the Champions League clash against Atalanta in midweek with a thigh problem, and manager Pep Guardiola is not sure if the Brazilian will be fit by the weekend.

"I don't know right now," said the City manager to reporters.

"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."
