Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson believes champions suffer without Aymeric Laporte in title race: & # 39; Of course we miss him & # 39;
- Manchester City trail title rivals Liverpool with eight points already in the competition
- Aymeric Laporte is injured until New Year and his absence is sharply felt
- Ederson said: & # 39; We all know the amazing quality of Aymeric and how good it is & # 39;
Manchester City's goalkeeper, Ederson, believes his party is injured with Aymeric Laporte.
The dominant central defender was a mainstay under Pep Guardiola, but will come out until the new year with a cruciate ligament injury sustained against Brighton.
Manchester City missed the defender and again looked shaky at the back, as they lost 2-0 to Wolves this weekend.
Ederson thinks the absence of Aymeric Laporte has hurt Manchester City this season
Ederson said: & # 39; It is very difficult for a team if we have injuries, especially if they are all on the same spot on the pitch.
& # 39; We all know how great Aymeric is and how good he is in the build-up phase. Of course we miss him.
& # 39; We have other great players who can replace him in that position.
& # 39; Unfortunately, with the injury to John Stones, we only have one natural center back.
The defender is out of action until the new year after a knee injury
& # 39; I think the team must be mentally strong to keep playing and winning in the championship. & # 39;
Liverpool has stolen a march on the champions and is currently eight points free at the top after eight games.
John Stones is expected to return for City on October 19 and his return will be a huge plus for Guardiola as his side looks to reduce the deficit.
