Man City goalkeeper Ederson: I knew where Milivojevic was hitting penalty

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson admits their point at Crystal Palace was earned thanks to some homework.

Ederson revealed he studied Luka Milivojevic's penalty technique before saving his injury-time spot kick to preserve City's unbeaten season.

The Brazilian keeper prevented defeat by saving the Serb's shot down the middle of the goal with his legs.

“All I was thinking about was saving the penalty," Ederson said. “It was a crunch time, at the end of the game, and I knew how important it was, so I am really happy to save it.

“Before every game Claudio and I sit with the goalkeeping coach to study the opponents' penalty-takers for these situations.

“We then made a counter-attack but unfortunately couldn't finish it, but we must congratulate ourselves because we gave our best against a good team who defended really well.

“They gave us a lot of difficulties, so we go on with our heads up, thinking about the next game."
