Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is “100 per cent” certain that Ederson will line up for Manchester City in a crunch Premier League clash despite picking up a knock on Champions League duty.
The Blues saw their Brazilian goalkeeper forced off at half-time during their European encounter with Atalanta.
An unfortunate situation got even worse for Pep Guardiola’s side nine minutes from time when Claudio Bravo was shown a red card, forcing Kyle Walker to be introduced between the sticks.
Klopp, though, believes that Guardiola will select his trusted first-choice keeper, with Liverpool not expecting to face a weakened opponent.
The Reds boss told Sky Sports: “If he does not play then it would change, because Ederson is an important part of the game. Bravo can do similar things – exactly the same nobody can do, that’s how it is.
“But, I expect him 100% to play.
“He’s an all the time player. Last year I think there was something similar when he went out in a game and a couple of days later he was back on the pitch.
“I think it was precaution. I watched the game and didn’t see any problems from him.”
