Whether it’s a ball rolling across his own goal line or an opponent putting him under intense pressure, City’s number 31 is always looking to play out from the back.
But while his skills on the ball are crucial to the way we play, it cannot be forgotten that he is a big presence as the last line of defence.
Ederson has come up with big saves just when they’ve been needed this season as we look to win a third successive Premier League title.
His fingertip touch onto the bar from Youri Tielemans’ vicious volley in the 1-0 victory at Leicester City helped ensure we took three points from the King Power Stadium.
And he made an outstanding stop against Liverpool when the slightest of touches diverted Mohammed Salah's shot after he raced clear.
Ederson will be part of the Brazil squad that are among the favourites for success in Qatar and will be back to play another big part in the second half of the season for City.
