Ederson admits Manchester City have been suffering since Aymeric Laporte’s knee KO is costing Manchester City in the title race.

Manchester City are eight points behind Liverpool in the Premier League table after losing to Wolves on Sunday.

City keeper Ederson claims the absence of key-centre back Laporte and Jon Stones with a thigh injury has hit them hard.

Ederson said: “It’s very difficult for a team like us having injuries, especially if they all happen in the same position on the pitch. We all know about the amazing quality of Aymeric and how good he is in the build-up phase. Of course, we are missing him. We have other great players who can replace him in that position.

“Unfortunately, with the injury to John Stones, we have only one natural centre-back. I think the team needs to be mentally strong to carry on playing and winning in the championship.”
