Many Manchester City fans were angered on Twitter despite their rampant win over Arsenal, following a near disastrous first-half performance by goalkeeper Ederson.
Taking the game to the faltering Londoners, the Blues ran out 5-0 victors courtesy of strikes from İlkay Gündoğan, Gabriel Jesus, Rodri and a brace from Ferran Torres [BBC].
However, one huge source of frustration for City supporters in the rout was the lack of care in possession from goalkeeper Ederson, who nearly gifted goals to the visitors on multiple occasions.
Did Ederson get lucky with his mistakes?
Needlessly causing anxiety amongst the Manchester City backline, the Brazilian hesitated with the ball before skewing a wayward pass off of Emile Smith-Rowe’s shin, with the ball rolling agonisingly close to the post.
Not long after that, the 28-year-old then scuffed a routine clearance straight into the Gunners’ midfield, which eventually lead to a one-on-one opportunity for the opposition – although that resulted in a narrow offside decision.
Discussing the one cloud in an otherwise shining team performance, loads of Manchester City diehards took to Twitter to blast Ederson owing to his less than convincing exploits.
Manchester City fans react:
Replying to multiple different outlets on Twitter, here is what some fans had to say about the shot-stopper:
“There’s something wrong with Ederson and Walker”
“I think he actually enjoys the stress/nerves at this point”
