Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson was a welcome sight at training on Monday after Saturday's injury scare.

After receiving a boot to the head during Saturday's clash against Liverpool, keeper Ederson looked like he could be out of the City line-up for some time.

However, the Brazilian stopper was in action during Monday's training session, albeit donning some much-needed head protection gear.

Liverpool and Senegal forward Sadio Mane before now had sent a goodwill message to Ederson who was stretched off the pitch at the Etihad Stadium over the weekend.

Liverpool were already trailing to Sergio Aguero's cool finish when Mane was sent off eight minutes before half-time for a high challenge on Ederson that left City's keeper requiring lengthy treatment for facial injuries before he was replaced by Claudio Bravo.

The Senegalese in a message to Ederson on his facebook page wrote: "I hope and wish Ederson a quick recovery. I am so sorry he was hurt during our accidental collision on the pitch and am sorry for him that he could not complete the match because of it.
