Stuart Pearce lavished praise upon Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes for his heroics against Nottingham Forest.

After a 10-man City left the Etihad Stadium with a 2-0 victory, the outspoken pundit gave his two cents (via Manchester City’s official YouTube channel) on the £34.7 million (Guardian) man.

While the likes of Phil Foden and Matheus Nunes may receive their plaudits for how they performed for Manchester City against Nottingham Forest, Stuart Pearce singled Ederson out.

Stuart Pearce raves about ‘sensational’ Ederson after Manchester City beat Nottingham Forest

Branded as ‘unique’ by Joleon Lescott, the Brazilian international came up trumps with a remarkable stop to keep Anthony Elanga’s venomous strike at bay.

As Forest continued to attack the treble-winners, who had lost Rodri to a silly red card in the second half, the 30-year-old’s clutch save played an instrumental role in the hosts walking away with three points.

Now, Stuart Pearce has showered Ederson with praise after Manchester City earned a hard-fought three points against Nottingham Forest.

“That save at the end from Ederson, absolutely sensational. We talked beforehand about what makes you lift three major trophies last year. It’s the defensive resoluteness in the team and we saw that from City once again and the save was outstanding.”

Ederson deserves more credit for his improvement as a shotstopper

It was nice to see Stuart Pearce highlight the decorated goalkeeper, who stood up tall for Manchester City yet against in their latest victory against Nottingham Forest.

In the past, the five-time Premier League winner has often been slated as a shotstopper and at least during the 2021/2022 season, the criticism was justified.
