Watch: Ederson makes two top saves to keep Man City alive at Burnley


Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson made two excellent saves to keep his side from going behind in their tough away match at Burnley.

City were a goal to the good thanks to Danilo’s stunner early on, but eventually Ederson was beaten by Johann Berg Gudmundsson as the points were shared at Turf Moor.

Ederson, however, was in fine form as he made tremendous saves either side of the half time whistle to deny Ben Mee and Aaron Lennon.

The first stop came on the half-hour as former City youngster Mee found himself clean through on goal.

A long free-kick was only half cleared and Jack Cork’s reset deflected into the path of Mee, who chose to volley first time from 15 yards, with Ederson getting down sharply to keep the effort out.

And his second stop was even more spectacular. Vincent Kompany’s error allowed Burnley to attack quickly, and they put together a fine move with Cork again the creator, this time finding Lennon.

His powerful strike looked to be flying into the top corner, but a quick fingertip from Ederson saw him touch it onto the frame of the goal.
