Man City could not get all 3 points on Atalanta’s field after a 1-1 draw last night. Although the team took the lead, the Manchester team still could not get all 3 when they were equalized in the second half. Not only that, but Man City fans have just received bad news about the injury situation of goalkeeper Ederson .
Although not active in the first half, but after the first 45 minutes, Ederson was suddenly withdrawn and replaced by goalkeeper Claudio Bravo. After the match, coach Pep Guardiola admitted his pet was injured and was still left open whether he could join the great battle against Liverpool at the weekend or not.
Speaking at the post-match press conference, coach Guardiola said: “I don’t know about Ederson’s injury right now. It’s a muscle problem. It’s not too serious but I want to avoid taking the risk. He felt uncomfortable in the last minutes of the first half and that’s why we decided to make a change.”
Bravo then conceded a goal as soon as he entered the field. He also received a red card for a foul on Josep Ilicic outside the box. Kyle Walker had to be Man City’s reluctant goalkeeper for the last 10 minutes, making a save. Despite not being able to win, Man City is still leading Group C of the Champions League with 10 points. They have 5 points more than Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb and are almost certain to progress.
