According to Guardiola, second-choice keeper, Claudio Bravo will feature for the Citizens in the absence of the Brazilian international.

Ederon was substituted at half-time during Man City’s Champions League 1-1 draw against Atalanta some few days ago after sustaining a muscular problem.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference on Friday, Guardiola was quoted by Man City’s official website as telling reporters: “Ederson is not able to play. I don’t know how long he will be out for, but Sunday, he cannot play.

“We have another keeper. Claudio Bravo and he can do it, too. I have every confidence in him.

“We won the Carabao Cup thanks to Claudio. He is an exceptional keeper and has won a lot of international games and tournaments with Chile. I have no doubts.”
