Man City Goalie Ederson Completes More First-Half Passes than Any Watford Player

Man City Goalie Ederson Completes More First-Half Passes than Any Watford Player

Manchester City‘s Ederson continued to build on his glowing career in England tonight – by completing more PASSES than the opposition outfield players.

The Brazilian shot-stopper seems to have solved what looked like a problem position for Pep Guardiola last season, as highlighted by his dramatic late double save against bitter rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier this month.

However, there’s much more to Ederson than saving shots and looking like the villain in the new James Bond movie.

The 24-year-old is a fully paid-up member of his manager’s tiki-taka style of football, and is deft with the ball at his feet that he allows his side the opportunity to begin attacks from their own penalty area.

In tonight’s Premier League match against Watford, according to the Telegraph, Ederson completed 16 passes successfully in the first-half – which was more than any single player in the Watford line-up.

When Manchester City’s goalkeeper is outpassing opponents, it really hammers home just how many light-years ahead of everybody else they are, eh?

What do you think of the stat?
