Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson is set to miss up to four weeks with the muscle injury he sustained in Sunday’s Premier League draw with Liverpool.

Ederson was hurt when he fouled striker Darwin Nunez for a Liverpool penalty, from which the hosts equalized.

Although the Brazilian carried on after receiving treatment, he had to be replaced soon after by Stefan Ortega.

Ederson, 30, is set to miss City’s next Premier League game at home to title rivals Arsenal on 31 March.

He would also miss this Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final at home to Newcastle, which is followed by the latest international break.

City have assessed the extent of the damage and told the Brazilian FA that Ederson will not be fit for international duty.

German keeper Ortega, 31, could also deputies for City’s home game with Aston Villa on Wednesday, 3 April and their visit to Crystal Palace the following Saturday.
