Just two days ago the news broke those Premier League Brazilian players who were not released for international duty at the international break would have to quarantine for 5 days, meaning they would miss this weekend’s round of fixtures. For Manchester City this meant being without Ederson and Gabriel Jesus, meaning Scott Carson would feature due to Zack Steffen being out with COVID.

However, according to The Times Northern Football Correspondent Paul Joyce and Sky Sports, Ederson and Jesus have been cleared to play for Manchester City with FIFA agreeing that Brazil have waivered the automatic five-day restriction.

This means City will be back with as full strength a team as possible (excluding injuries) and can head into the tough fixture against Leicester with the odds in their favour.
