Liverpool Goalkeeper Alisson Becker makes ‘honest admission’ about Manchester City’s Ederson
Liverpool Goalkeeper Alisson Becker believes his compatriot Ederson was expected to play for Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final clash on Saturday.
Pep Guardiola decided to go back to Zack Steffen in goal as the American has played in more FA Cup games than Ederson over the previous rounds.
This pep Guardiola decision backfired as Steffen was culpable for the second Liverpool goal and did not have a comfortable afternoon.
Liverpool pressed and attacked the Manchester City backup goalkeeper as his distribution was bad time and time again. When asked about the surprise selection made by Guardiola, Alisson said:
“I was expecting him to be playing, to be honest. Here in England, managers have a choice to rotate the goalkeepers sometimes.
“This season was different from our side: I played a few games before in the FA Cup and Caoimhin [Kelleher] had the opportunity to play the League Cup.
“For me, particularly, it is important to play all the games. Their managers trusts their goalkeeper so that’s all good.”
