Manchester City has received a concerning new injury setback before their upcoming matches against Newcastle and Arsenal, as one of their key players was seen leaving the Liverpool game with a noticeable limp.

Pep Guardiola and Manchester City have received a further setback in the form of an injury to Ederson, who was had to leave the field during Sunday’s 1-1 draw against Liverpool.

Manchester City’s position in the Premier League title fight weakened on Sunday afternoon, as they drew 1-1 at Anfield and fell one point behind both Liverpool and Arsenal. This setback occurred with only 10 games remaining in the campaign.

Alexis Mac Allister’s second-half penalty, resulting from a sequence of significant defensive mistakes, nullified John Stones’ initial goal, further extending Manchester City’s disappointing performance at Anfield for yet another season.

The Sky Blues gained an advantage by scoring a goal through Stones following a skillfully executed set-piece strategy. A precise ball from Kevin De Bruyne and a diversionary run from Nathan Ake created the opportunity for the Englishman to swiftly strike at the near post.

Manchester City’s strong performance in the first half was quickly negated in the second half as Ederson committed a foul on Darwin Nunez, resulting in a penalty, after a subpar pass from Ake.

The Brazilian goalkeeper received medical attention for a leg injury he suffered during the incident, and was subsequently substituted by Stefan Ortega shortly after Liverpool scored an equalizing goal from a penalty kick.

Ederson, who was also substituted during a Premier League match against Newcastle United in January, may now be unable to participate in the next FA Cup quarter-final match at the Etihad Stadium against the Magpies due to a leg injury.
