Man City keeper Ederson happy seeing De Bruyne back to his best

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson is happy seeing Kevin de Bruyne back to his best.

The Belgian has been in imperious form in recent weeks, with his man-of-the-match displays against Arsenal and Leicester vital in securing maximum points from two tough games.

It's seen a surge of praise for the midfielder, something Ederson says it's justified.

“We are all aware of Kevin De Bruyne's quality," he told City's website.

"He is an extraordinary player. He finishes well with both feet, he is very good at crossing balls and he has amazing vision to give the key pass.

"He is a very important player for us, both in the creation and the finishing. He has been contributing a lot to the team this season and I hope he can keep the same level.

"To me, he is in the top three best midfielders in the world.

"He has been playing at a really high level not only this season, but also in the previous ones.

"I think it's well deserved for him to be considered among the best three midfielders in the world at the moment."
