Ederson After the Goal Rush
Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson says he would love to score a Premier League goal before the end of the season. With the title wrapped up, the Brazilian has cheekily suggested that he would love to take a penalty if he could.
Ederson has been a revelation since joining the club, as much for his ability with the ball at his feet, as what he does with his hands. Ederson, who started life as an outfield player, would love to top his season with a goal.
“I heard the fans chanting my name, asking me to take the penalty, but Gabriel went there," he told ESPN. "Unfortunately he missed it and Bernardo [Silva], fortunately, scored, but if the manager had asked me to go there, I would have definitely scored.
"I'm not sure if I would be able to do set-pieces, but I'm good at penalties, either using power or technique when I'm shooting. City have their regular penalty takers and we have good options, but if Pep asks me to take it, I'm there.
“Hopefully it will happen (before the end of the season), I'd like to score." City are currently on course for a record points total in the Premier League and are not far away from a record number of goals scored.
