A key player from Manchester City will be absent for both the Premier League finale and the FA Cup final.

Manchester City’s upcoming matches will be without Ederson, as he faces an injury that rules him out of the Premier League finale and the FA Cup final. The club confirmed this setback through an official statement on their website and social media platforms.

During a pivotal 2-0 triumph over Tottenham, Ederson sustained a minor fracture to his right eye socket, as revealed by scans. This unfortunate incident involving a collision with Tottenham’s Christian Romero forced Ederson off the pitch, with Stefan Ortega stepping in and making crucial saves against key players like Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski.

Despite initial concerns, it’s fortunate that Ederson didn’t suffer a concussion. However, his absence for the remaining matches of the season is confirmed. The statement from Manchester City’s official account acknowledged this injury, expressing that Ederson will miss these critical games.

While this news is concerning for City and their fans, there’s confidence in Stefan Ortega, their second-choice goalkeeper. Ortega has proven his capabilities on multiple occasions, notably in the recent victory over Tottenham, where he played a pivotal role in securing the win during the intense title race.

So, as Manchester City navigates these final games without Ederson, they remain optimistic in their backup goalkeeper’s abilities to maintain their performance standards.
