We are focused on keeping our momentum going – Ederson
Manchester City first-choice goalkeeper, Ederson has stated that the only thing that himself and his teammates are focused on right now is keeping their momentum going.
City is Champions-elect in the Premier League as they are 16 points clear at the summit. They defeated Arsenal in the EFL Cup final two weeks ago to claim the trophy and have also thrashed Basel 4-0 in the first leg of their Round of 16 clash in the Champions League.
There are talks of a possible treble at the end of the campaign for Guardiola’s exceptional side from every corner. Ederson has, however, called for calm insisting that they will only celebrate at the end when they have won and not now.
While speaking with City’s official website, the Brazilian said: “The players are very calm, and all we’re thinking of is to keep doing our best, keep our concentration and the momentum going.”
“We will only celebrate when we are champions and not before. We are focused on our next challenge now, the Champions League, but we can’t feel comfortable at all, we must always be careful and doubtful.”
“For us, the key is to keep on working hard to be focused like we have been doing this season, that’s how we get to win games.”
Ederson has been in a great form since completing his move to City from Benfica in the summer, taking Claudio Bravo’s place as the club’s number one shot stopper and going on to establish himself as one of the most consistent in the league – keeping 13 clean sheets along the way.
“I am feeling very well and the whole team too,” he added. “We are playing amazing football.”
