A commanding presence at the base of City’s defence, Ederson’s natural ability, superb footwork, exemplary vision and all-round athleticism have coalesced to see him redefine the goalkeeping role across the English game and beyond.
And a deeper dive into the stats and facts regarding the Brazilian’s hugely impressive four and a half years at the Etihad only further emphasises his remarkable impact on City.
A double Premier League Golden Glove winner in both 2020/21 and 2019/20, from his 212 games across all competition for City to date, Ederson has conceded just 161 goals.
Across the 18,942 minutes he has so far racked up, that equates to a goal conceded every 117.7 minutes.
Drilling down even further, to date Ederson has made 365 saves, equating to a staggering save percentage of 69 per cent.
Meanwhile, from 26 penalties faced, the 27-year-old has saved four.
The other hugely impressive facet of Ederson’s game has been his sheer consistency as a look at his clean sheets to games played ratio testifies season by season:
2017/18 – Games Played 45; Clean Sheets 20
2018/19 – Games Played 55; Clean Sheets 28
2019/20 – Games Played 44; Clean Sheets 18
2020/21 – Games Played 48; Clean Sheets 26
2021/22 – Games Played 20; Clean Sheets 8
The encouraging thing from City’s perspective is that at 27, Ederson is arguably yet to even hit his prime.
But on the compelling evidence of his time at the Club to date, more records are surely in the offing for our clean sheet centurion!
