Manchester City may be without goalkeeper Ederson for the vital Premier League encounter against Arsenal.

The Brazilian is reportedly a “major doubt” after suffering a thigh injury during the 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

Ederson collided with Darwin Nunez, resulting in a penalty, before being replaced by Stefan Ortega.

According to the Daily Mail, Ederson faces three to four weeks on the sidelines, perhaps putting him out of the Arsenal game on March 31.

On the other hand, Ortega, who signed in 2022, is expected to step in during Ederson’s absence, having made 24 appearances for City, mostly in cup competitions.

Ortega’s only Premier League start this season came in a 2-1 win over Brighton in October.
