Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson is being assessed for a facial fracture after a nasty collision with Liverpool forward Sadio Mane on Saturday.

The former Benfica stopper was caught in the face by a high foot from Mane in the first half of the Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium.

Senegal striker Mane was given a straight red card by referee Jonathan Moss before Ederson was removed from the pitch on a stretcher after eight minutes of treatment.

City's number one, who was replaced by Claudio Bravo, was then taken to the nearby Manchester Institute of Health and Performance to be assessed.

Press Association Sport understands Ederson, who cost £35million this summer, did not suffer concussion but the club's medical team are checking for fractures.

Mane, meanwhile, can expect to miss Liverpool's next three domestic games - against Burnley and Leicester in the Premier League as well as a clash against the Foxes in the Carabao Cup.

Dortmund poach highly-rated youngster from Man City

Borussia Dortmund have signed highly-rated England youth international Jadon Sancho from Manchester City, the Bundesliga club have announced.

Press Association Sport understands the German club have paid around £8million for the 17-year-old in a deal which also guarantees City will receive a substantial sell-on clause should he move on again.

The winger has been tempted to move by the prospect of first-team football in Germany and will wear the number seven shirt recently vacated by Ousmane Dembele at Dortmund.

Sancho was one of the star players during the recent Under-17 European Championship, in which England finished runners-up, and had attracted interest from Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham.

City had hoped to persuade their Academy product to stay but he turned down the offer of a new contract.

Dortmund sports director Michael Zorc told the club's website, www.bvb.de: "We are very pleased that Jadon Sancho, who is currently one of the greatest talents in European football, will definitely play at BVB.

"We are convinced that we can help this very young player continue to develop his game and become a real asset for our team."

Guardiola baffled by Sterling red card at Bournemouth

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has called for an explanation for the red card shown to Raheem Sterling after he hit an injury-time winner at Bournemouth.

The England winger saw his last-gasp effort deflect in off Andrew Surman to seal a dramatic 2-1 win for City in a finish captain Vincent Kompany described as "absolute madness".

Sterling's joy was relatively short-lived as referee Mike Dean showed him a second yellow card for celebrating with the jubilant away fans.

Asked if he knew why Sterling had been sent off, the former Barcelona boss replied: "It is a good question.

"I would like someone to comment, if you cannot celebrate with the fans the best solution is not to invite the fans. You can imagine how happy he is, how happy the fans are.

"We won, If we had not won or lost I would not have made the argument but I would like someone to tell me that.

"Teams who always have 65-70 percent possession always have the player sent off, perhaps someone can explain that to me one day."
