LONDON, May 16 — Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson will miss Sunday’s concluding game of the Premier League season and next week’s FA Cup final, the club announced Thursday.

The Brazilian was forced off with a facial injury during City’s 2-0 win over Tottenham on Tuesday that left Pep Guardiola’s men on the brink of an unprecedented fourth successive English top-flight title.

Scans have confirmed Ederson suffered a small fracture to the right eye socket following a collision with Cristian Romero.

He will now miss Sunday’s league game at home to West Ham and the FA Cup final against Manchester United at Wembley the following week.


City, two points clear of Arsenal, will guarantee the Premier League title if they beat West Ham at the Etihad. — AFP
