The Senegalese forward only had his eyes on Joel Matip‘s long ball, but was immediately given his marching orders by referee Jonathan Moss for a high foot.
Ederson was subsequently stretchered off the pitch and replaced by Claudio Bravo between the sticks.
The 24-year-old Ederson was signed from Benfica for around £34.9 million in the summer, and early diagnosis on the injury was that he suffered cheek and jaw injuries. The Independent’s Miguel Delaney reported that Ederson wasn’t going to hospital, and was instead going for further medical examination at City’s nearby Etihad Campus.
