Thier attacking and defending start from the goalkeeper, Ederson, who love dashing out to shut a potential counter-attack. The city's shot stopper has unmatched vision and calmness in the goal post. 

In the last game against Liverpool, the Brazilian made a mistake near the goal line and Diogo Jota was  moving to close and suffocate him. But he was quick to sense the danger and made a magical control before passing the ball to his teammate. In a pre-match with ATM, Guardiola was asked about  Ederson's  mistake on Sunday that almost costed the team and surprisingly the Spanish tactician lauded him for his calmness and sharpness.


“Ederson is a crazy guy, sometimes he doesn't feel something. He forgets the previous action as soon as possible. Concede a goal he is calm, makes a mistake is calm. So stable, as a keeper, is fantastic. Doesn't matter, Eddy is what he is. So good that he's so stable, doesn't feel the pressure. The risk that he played the ball is nothing”.
