Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson believes his side is ‘fully capable’ of winning the treble this season.
City are at the top of the Premier League table, still in the FA Cup as well as the Champions League. The Cytizens will host Sporting CP tonight in the second leg of the Champions League last 16 having beaten the Portugal side 5-0 in the reverse fixture.
The Brazilian is hopeful his side can with every remaining competition this season, including the Champions League.
“Our goal is to win every competition we go into, this is no different,” he said.
“We need to take it step-by-step. There are challenges in every competition we play in.”
“Definitely – we know how difficult it is. A season here in England is very intense when there’s a lot of demand. We have the quality to do this and I think we’re fully capable of meeting that.”
On Pep Guardiola’s impact
“He guides and advises both young and experienced players,” he said.
“At certain times some players may be relaxed a little bit, so he tells players to be focused for 90 minutes and always look for another goal – that’s why he has a position of leadership and respect in the team.”
“It is difficult to concentrate when I don’t see much of the ball,” he said.
“I constantly communicate with team-mates. Even in a game when I don’t make many saves, I am tired mentally – the mental tiredness is more tiring than physical!”
