Ederson also had warm words of praise for young goalkeepers Aro Muric and Daniel Grimshaw, who have both been training with the first team in the wake of the long-term injury which has sidelined Claudio Bravo.

Muric made an accomplished first-team debut in last Tuesday’s Carabao Cup win away at Oxford while Academy graduate Grimshaw is also tipped for a bright future.

And Ederson is in no doubt that both possess all the credentials needed to thrive with the demands of first-team football.

The 'keeper said: “They’re two young goalkeepers, with whom I work every day. Two exceptional young players, I play a lot with them, we talk a lot, which helps me to improve my English, so that helps me. 

“I’m currently the most experienced out of the three but yes, I believe so (that they would be ready step in at any time). They train every day with us, they’re very well adjusted to the team. They know what the team wants. 

“They are both good playing with their feet, they can kick well from the goal and they are great between the posts. In my opinion, either one is prepared for an eventual match.”

The Brazilian also offered a message of support for Chilean international Bravo who is currently undergoing rehabilitation after rupturing his Achilles tendon last month.

Bravo had worked closely together on and off the field with Ederson through last season’s record-breaking campaign, but the Chilean is now facing a lengthy spell out of action. 

Ederson added: “I was quite angry and upset with his injury, I hope he recovers well alongside with his family, so he can come back 100% well and as soon as possible.

“I was obviously used to have him with me daily and due to his injury, we’ll be training for a long time without him.”
