Due to a major shoulder injury, Pep Guardiola is concerned that Ederson, the goalie for Manchester City, may miss the last stretch of the Premier League title race.

After City’s hard-fought victory sustained pressure on leaders Arsenal, Ederson was replaced at halftime and exited the City Ground in a sling.

If Ederson’s shoulder injury is as serious as anticipated, Stefan Ortega, who recently enjoyed a six-game run for City while the Brazilian was sidelined due to a thigh issue, may be available to play for the rest of the campaign.

With a game in hand, Man City are only one point behind the Gunners thanks to goals from Josko Gvardiol and Erling Haaland, but Guardiola acknowledged there are serious worries about Ederson.

Meanwhile, Haaland, who scored his 32nd goal of the season, highlighted the significance of the victory, stating,

“It’s about winning the game and that’s exactly what we did.”

On the opposing side, Forest boss Nuno Espirito Santo expressed hope for a favorable outcome in the club’s appeal against a four-point deduction for breaching the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules.

The pending decision holds significant implications for the club’s league standing, with Santo emphasizing the importance of clarity on the matter for all involved parties.
