Ederson

Fernandinho has lauded team-mate Ederson as a complete goalkeeper after the Brazil international made two crucial saves in Manchester City’s win at Crystal Palace.

Ederson City celebrating

City lost to Wolves before the international break but were in dominant form at Selhurst Park – quickfire goals from Gabriel Jesus and David Silva just reward for their display.

“I think we had a very good performance, we created a lot of chances to score many more goals,” said the 34-year-old, who started at centre-back alongside fellow midfielder Rodri.

“Ederson made also two important saves. If you look at the game overall, we deserved to win from the beginning. We went for it, we found the spaces, we missed a lot of chances.

“[Ederson] has shown the player he is since the day he arrived. When the club signed him, in the first training sessions, I was impressed with him.

“He’s a goalkeeper and the club signed him, first of all, to save, but it’s a great bonus that he can play with his feet, the quality he has to play with his feet is amazing. To me, he is a very complete goalkeeper.”
