Ederson kept a clean sheet when Blues secured a point at Anfield on Sunday to keep the top of the Premier League table on goal difference. The Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has admitted that Liverpool stops and Brazil's landsman Alisson remain "one step ahead" of him. Ederson looked at the bench at the World Cup like Brazil No. 2, despite being the standby keeper in the Premier League season.
Alisson, who was impressive in Roma last season, got the Nikken in Russia to the starting bench before moving to Anfield in the summer for a world record. Ederson is set to a rare start between the bars of Brazil's battle against the Saudi Arabia this week, saying that his relative lack of international experience places him a little behind Alisson in the pick-up order.
