"Hopefully [he will play again soon], it depends on him".

EDERSON was pictured training with Manchester City in head gear today after his nasty collision with Sadio Mane.

"I spoke with him and he knows the reason why but it is between him and me", Guardiola said when asked about Toure's absence at De Kuip, although he clarified application in training was not the issue.

City defender John Stones praised the keeper's bravery, saying: "Ederson has got on with it straight away".

That feud was patched up in time for the 34-year-old to score both goals in a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace last November and he proceeded to play an integral part in City's season. "Of course that can happen but we will see".
