Ederson appeared keen on taking Manchester City’s penalty against Tottenham this evening – but Bernardo Silva wouldn’t let him.
In case you missed it, Pep Guardiola suggested earlier this week that Ederson could be Man City’s new penalty taker, with his side struggling to find the back of the net from 12-yards, as Sky Sports report.
Ederson will have heard what his manager was saying in the press, and was likely begging for the opportunity behind the scenes, or so his reaction when City were awarded a penalty this evening suggests.

Rodri did convert, but only just, with Hugo Lloris likely disappointed he didn’t stop it. Surely, sooner rather than later, we’re going to get to see Ederson take one?
