Man City captain Kompany: Ederson crucial for Burnley draw

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany praised Ederson after their 1-1 draw at Burnley.

The Brazilian goalkeeper produced another superb individual display at Turf Moor, making a number of crucial saves, not least a remarkable second-half block from Aaron Lennon.

"I think that you judge a good goalkeeper not by the amount of saves he makes but the importance of the ones he saves," said Kompany.

"Today there were a couple of chances where we lost the second ball for some reason and to have him make the save just shows what a tremendous player he is to have in your squad."

Though City are now 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League, Kompany said the draw was a valuable reminder to the Blues of the need to be clinical.

"We never doubted this league was competitive. We were warned for this kind of situation and we knew we would have to take our chances," Vincent added.

"We created some chances in an incredible manner but we probably ran out of steam a little bit. We kept trying and trying but in the end we were punished and we mustn't feel too sad about this as our performance was good."
