Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has been training with the first-team despite recent injury concerns.
The 30-year-old was replaced by Stefan Ortega just minutes into Manchester City’s 3-2 win over Newcastle United at St James’ Park last weekend, after being involved in a nasty collision with Sean Longstaff and Kyle Walker.
Ederson attempted to continue for Manchester City after receiving medical treatment for a nasty blow to the leg, but was quickly taken off after being unable to remain on the pitch.
Pep Guardiola’s side came back from 2-1 down to beat Newcastle and move to within two points of league leaders Liverpool, as substitutes Kevin De Bruyne and Oscar Bobb rescued a vital victory for the Sky Blues.
De Bruyne, who was marking his Premier League return after a five-month absence, equalised with a superb strike from distance before assisting Bobb’s late winner.
The Belgium international’s return will provide a welcome boost to the City squad, with Guardiola having also been without striker Erling Haaland for the past nine matches due to a foot injury.
John Stones is also currently sidelined, meanwhile Manuel Akanji is set to be out of action due to an injury suffered against Huddersfield Town in the Emirates FA Cup.
Guardiola will therefore have welcomed the sight of seeing Ederson involved in first-team training after suffering a gruesome injury against Newcastle, as Manchester City prepare for a crunch Emirates FA Cup clash against Tottenham.
City travel to north London in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Friday, ahead of returning to Premier League action against Burnley on Wednesday 31st January.
The treble-winners are currently training in Abu Dhabi, where a warm-weather training camp is taking place during the Premier League’s winter break.
