Ederson shows text messages he received from Arsenal fans after his phone number leaked

Ederson revealed the influx of messages from Arsenal and Tottenham supporters that flooded his inbox after his contact details were inadvertently shared online.

In the aftermath of Manchester City’s 2-0 triumph over Tottenham, the victory was marred by injuries to key players Ederson and Kevin De Bruyne.

Ederson endured a heavy impact from a clash with Cristian Romero, while De Bruyne was sidelined following a tackle by Pape Matar Sarr.

Substitute goalkeeper Stefan Ortega was called into action and performed admirably, making a crucial save against Son Heung-min in the closing minutes, eliciting a unanimous reaction from Arsenal fans.

Following the match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Ederson turned to social media to display the barrage of messages he received from both Arsenal and Tottenham enthusiasts, sharing a snapshot of his WhatsApp conversations.

“My number was leaked, and I had some funny messages,” wrote Ederson, accompanied with an image of the messages.

Pep Guardiola will now be sweating over Ederson’s health ahead of their title-deciding game at home to West Ham United on Sunday.

Speaking after the result, Guardiola said: “Ederson did not have concussion, he had a problem with his eye.

“He could not see properly so the doctor said I should change.

“He [Stefan Ortega] is a world-class keeper. He’s an exceptional, exceptional keeper.”

In his post-match press conference, he added: “Ederson had a kick in the eye and it is swollen. He can’t see properly. The doctor told me he needed to be replaced. I didn’t have an alternative.”

Ederson was furious after being taken off against Tottenham. He was consoled by his manager before taking his seat on the bench.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper has played 33 league games this campaign and will be hoping to start against West Ham United in their final game of the season.
