Ederson trains with City ahead of CL clash

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has trained ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash at Feyenoord.

The Brazilian suffered facial injuries in a nasty clash with Liverpool’s Sadio Mane at the weekend and City are assessing his fitness ahead of the Group F opener in Rotterdam.

Captain Vincent Kompany is doubtful with the calf injury that saw him miss out on Saturday but forward Raheem Sterling is available after a domestic ban.

Liverpool have appealed against the FA’s decision to ban Mane for three games.

The Reds  will use FA guidelines to argue the ban is “clearly excessive”.

Liverpool are not expected to be successful with their appeal, even though several high-profile pundits have argued that Mane was entitled to challenge for the ball.
