Manchester City ended up with Kyle Walker playing in goal in their Champions League clash with Atalanta at the San Siro.

First choice goalkeeper Ederson was substituted at half-time as a precaution ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Liverpool after picking up an injury in the first-half.

And things got worse for Pep Guardiola’s side when his replacement, Claudio Bravo, was sent off for bringing down Atalanta striker Josip Ilicic with 10 minutes left on the watch.

The Chilean protested the decision and it was checked by VAR, but he was rightly shown a straight red card for preventing a clear goal scoring opportunity.

It led to Walker being introduced from the bench to put on the goalkeepers’ shirt, tasked with stopping the resulting free-
kick from a dangerous position as his first involvement.

Bravo’s chance to impress after Ederson’s injury blow went badly wrong, but he could have another opportunity to make amends if the Brazilian is ruled out at the weekend.
