Manchester City have provided an update on Ederson’s status ahead of their upcoming matches against West Ham and Manchester United following his injury during the Tottenham game.

Ederson’s availability for Manchester City’s upcoming matches against West Ham and Manchester United is in doubt due to an eye injury he sustained during their game against Tottenham. The Brazilian goalkeeper suffered a fractured eye socket following a collision with Spurs’ Christian Romero, forcing him to miss the crucial end-of-season fixtures.


The incident occurred when Ederson clashed with Romero at the back post, prompting immediate medical attention from City’s staff. Despite attempts to continue playing, he was eventually replaced by Stefan Ortega on 69 minutes, visibly frustrated by the situation.


City’s decision to allow Ederson to play on briefly drew criticism from a head injury charity, although it’s noted that he remained conscious throughout and cleared all on-field medical checks. However, concerns about potential swelling prompted the club doctor’s recommendation to substitute him.


Following scans, it was confirmed that Ederson’s eye socket had a small fracture, ruling him out for the rest of the season, including the FA Cup final. While no specific recovery timeline was provided, he was still part of Brazil’s squad for the upcoming Copa America.


With Ederson sidelined, Ortega is expected to step in as the starting goalkeeper for the remaining games, as City navigates their final fixtures without their regular shot-stopper.
