This pretty much sums it up, for us.
Journalist Nooruddean Choudry perfectly predicted what would happen to Ederson one month ago, on August 12th.
Today, the keeper rushed out of his goal and was kicked by Sadio Mane, who got a red card, although the Senegalese was within his rights to go for the ball in that area of the pitch.
Ederson was stretchered off, the game was ruined as spectacle and City are romping to victory.
Ederson is really quick at coming off his line, but one day he's going to seriously injure himself or someone else. Really barges at times

Obviously, we really hope Ederson is ok. But it was his reckless decision to go for the ball with his head, 35-yards out of his goal, in a 50-50, that caused the problem.
If Mane had nicked the ball, Ederson would have been sent off. But as it is, he didn’t get there and we now will be without our best player for three games.
